Our friends over at Duckworks Magazine have published a great guest article by a confirmed boat widow. If you are a boat widow (married to a boat builder), or if you are a builder as blessed with a supportive wife as I am, or just want another viewpoint on the building of boats, check it out.
Yet after forty-three years we are still here and still building. Unlike the missing Houston husband, Mike hasn’t sailed away in our 52 foot ketch and cleaned out our bank account, even when he had the chance. Perhaps that is why I love Jethro on NCIS so much, never sailing the boats, only building them and never, ever telling how he gets them out of the basement.
Only a boat widow would understand. That’s true love.
