While visiting vintage and classic boat shows around the country, what sometimes seems so evident, beyond just the spectacular restorations, is where did all this come from? I mean, sure, it was in the boathouse just last week, but really, what is the story behind this boat. Why did it survive while thousands of others didn't? What kind of provenance stands behind it, and who were the caretakers before that ensured it would be here, right in front of you, today? Who built it, and where is their place in history? Can we place it in the timeline of our families, before we were born?
Each boat has a history, a heritage of how it has come to this place. While the artifact is indeed amazing, the journey to bring it back to life is even more so. Bob Matson's book, What's in Your Boat House? Amazing Stories of Nautical Archeology, brings these journeys to light in this intriguing collection!
