Much of my life has been on the water. Some of the first photographs of me are of my mother holding me in Galilee while my father was surveying a fishing boat. I spent my young life on ferries and ships and small boats. In all eventuality, I went to sea as well.
But my greatest adventures came about in and from small boats. My first bits of independence were in a small skiff like the one photographed. I bought it with the money that I earned. I rowed it until I scraped together enough to buy a British Seagull outboard (bare bones and basic). Those small boats were either an adventure or carried me on an escapade on another vessel. In the turn of time as I reflect, it was the small boats that led me to see the world.
So, while some look to have something of a superyacht. Or a fast powerboat. Or an elegant sailing yacht. Or even seek to be a captain of a ferry or even larger ship. While I have experienced most of these, my heart remains with the adventures of a little boat by the ramp in the marina.
