Henrik’s Project

They say that ‘every cloud has a silver lining’.

And that is true of every recession.

For those lucky or prudent enough to have weathered the economic down turn there are no end of bargains to be had.

This is especially true for anyone looking for a wooden boat.

Take for example this Classic Mahogany hulled 53foot Motor Yacht which Henrik in the US is bidding for.

There is a good chance that anyone buying a wooden boat now, then doing a little work on her could double their money in a few years when the economy recovers.

But aside from any speculative considerations there are many wooden boats like Henrik’s which deserve to be preserved, not just for their beauty but as cultural artefacts with historical significance.

I am perfectly aware that the majority of Wooden Boat aficionados are sensible folk.
However, I need to point out that I am an amateur wooden boat enthusiast simply writing in order to try to help other amateur wooden boat enthusiasts.
And while I take every care to ensure that the information in DIY Wood Boat.com is correct, anyone acting on the information on this website does so at their own risk.
