100 Years of Wooden Glory
"We do not own these vessels they own us. I hold a high regard for the artisans of these craft, the way they created them and their ideals. My life's passion is to maintain the regal splendour of these vessels, vessels of a bygone era. Naturally, to be charged as a caretaker of our nautical history is the most gratifying of life's ambition I could imagine." Andy McCutcheon, Author
