From Godfrey Stephens this morning:
Here is a great Little drawing i found of a Sampan
the general name for these small Junks
found in China everywhere in the Olden times.
Godfrey’s 12′ San Francisco Pelican junk-rigged sailboat with cabin, sliding Lexan roof, tiny wood stove, painted, carved, decorated—-just finished and launched—will appear in our next book, Wheels & Water. Godfrey is about to set sail in British Columbia waters this Fall and I’m sure he’ll send me 100s of photos and 1000s of words, all for me to distill into 2 pages. This is a gorgeous little boat!
