The story of me, an American in Edinburgh, Scotland finding my place as a musician, a husband, a father and a Christian.


Today Mary, Jeni and I, along with a few other people, went out to the Coeur d’ Alene Wooden Boat Festival. Ok, if that sounds like lame rickety wooden sailboats, you're mistaken. We got there late in the day, but there was one owner still giving rides in his V-10, 550hp 26' all wood powerboat. He was nice enough to take us out on the water and, man, that is quite a rush. This'll be a short post cause I'm about to head off to bed, but check out some of the pics of these beautiful boats. In case you're wondering, the boat we rode in starts at $200,000 and this one starts at $300,000.

    Dude, wooden boats are incredible. All-wood kayaks are cool. One of my dad's friends builds them. The price is due to the incredible amount of labor that goes into making them. Decks was planning on making one two years ago, and he's still in the planning process.
