Gavin over at intheboatshed pointed us to The Invisible Workshop, a nice blog run by a Brit living in Catalonia, Spain. The author, Ben, built a boat, ONAWIND BLUE, to Gavin’s Light Trow design. Ben seems to camp-cruise the boat around the Western Mediterranean. We are eager to understand how he has formed this enviable life.
The blog is also a great source for information on traditional Spanish boats. Ben, you have already contributed greatly to the Iberian section of my Traditional Boats of the World project. There are some really gorgeous boats there and I’d encourage folks to delve deeper into Ben’s posts on the subject as there are many more pictures than the one-of-each I plot on the map. As of this moment, any boat plotted in Spain is courtesy of Ben. Many thanks!
