Having grown up in and out of boats on the New England coast, I consider them as much a part of my visual lexicon as the Capes, farmhouses, cottages, fishing shacks, and barns that I often write about here. There's much to be learned from the craftsmanship, order, materials, color, finish, scale, and elegance of this floating beauty. Many of my favorite spaces are boat-like; none more than this one.
