'Odysseus', frequently visits the shipyard in Gilleleje/DK.
Ancient boats, yoles and ships constructed in timber gets fewer each year - worldwide!
The craftsmanship of boat-/yole- and shipbuilding and due maintenance in tree and timber is widely neglected - unfortunately. Replaced by 'plast this and that padding' as the 'Ocean and Sea wonders' in modern yacht-/shipbuilding, because you can cast/'couler' the models faster than .... at the expense/'souici' of the environment/ l'environnement'.
Not many seems to care, except that - it's a matter of speed of the vessels/crafts - to be the fastest.
Isn't it?
