I pass this old boat in front of the marina on my trips to Sausalito. It probably will not last too much longer as boards have sprung and there is plenty of rot. In the past I painted it on site but this time I stopped and took photos. It sits on a bed of ice plant, propped up on a skid and cinder blocks.
What I want to happen, is for a repair crew to come and resuscitate this grand model of fishing craft. As I think back on the scenes that attract me to painting, I keep finding old retired equipment, dilapidated houses, broken fences, etc. Is this a result of my aging?
