At the Mercy of the Elements

I have been loving Vimeo for giving us a filmmakers view into the cooler woodshops and boatyards around our planet. These beautifully made films highlight the craftsmanship and total dedication of the gentle souls who pour a lifetime – sometimes many lifetimes and generations – of talent and skill into these wooden projects. It takes the boats and crafts they make to a new level when you can watch a film to see inside the passion of the shipwright or woodworker.

C Blunt Boat Builders in based in Victoria, Australia. They are another example of a cool old yard (Since 1858) handing down the passion over 5 generations. They do things the right way, even if it takes longer. And they still employ the marine railway – another sign of a boatyard with badassness and old timey coolness at their core.

Enjoy checking out this great boatyard. I even think they are hiring: Anyone?    http://www.bluntboats.com.au/index.html
