Altheus’ boat

Altheus lives down by Capuchin Bay and in his spare time he constructs wood boats. His work shop is under the big mango tree by the road so as I was walking to and from Clifton, usually on a daily basis, I got to see the whole process and the boat slowly take shape. There is an amazing craftsmanship involved and no fancy tools. Often, the older men in Capuchin will come down and keep him company and help out… one just hopes the skill gets passed on to the younger generation.

This is one of the finished products, still under the big mango tree at Capuchin Bay.
