Kindred Spirits...



I had the pleasure of cruising the high seas with Edwin Landis aboard the Pterodactyl Saturday.  She is a 42' ferrocement schooner that Eddy built.  He going to start taking her out for charter at Boston Harbor Marina. More info here

The apple didn't fall far from the tree because both Eddy's kids are bad ass sailors.  Ocean has his Captain's licence and owns his own ferrocement boat.  Check out Eddy's daughter Cosima's instagram page as she prepares to sail in the America's Cup!  I stole this shot of the Dactyl  :)




Inside this boat feels huge. So many small details.  I love the rear galley


This was a cool sewn cover that went over a portal window.  It was made 40 years ago from nylon, possibly old sails?, and it has the warm feel of stained glass... 


A nice door with a great latch to the...


Engine room and workshop!  Every boat/human needs one...


This book is incredible.  So much information and the best line drawings!  Clifford Ashley you rock.  Incredible design ideas on so many levels.  I love finding books like this one.
