From Godfrey Stephens:
“Bruno and Mecea’s s/v Ola Suerte
‘engine’/sailing up the coast…”
Bruno was one of our star builders in Builders of the Pacific Coast. He welded up this spiffy sailboat out of sheets of steel, using the “origami” technique of boat building, pulling the sheets into shape with come-alongs, then welding. Over a period of 12 years. He also welded up a tiny stainless steel wood stove for the boat.The deck is split cedar. Bruno is an awesome builder, master with many materials, also surfer, fisherman and adventurer of “The Wild Coast” of British Columbia. I want to be like him when I grow up.
