I had forgotten about this little film – it was a bittersweet tour around a boatyard in Maldon – beautiful, melancholic.
Why do people own old wooden boats and then just let them rot away. I remember an old Caprice I saw moldering in the corner of a yard in Bembridge. The man pays the £150 a year for the space and comes to see it once a year. The boatyard owner did ask why he keeps it – the answer “to keep the dream alive.”
but to have a dream that is falling apart is such a sad thing.
