Ben Duffin
Lead Boat Builder
It’s enough to make you cry. Or, to quote a good friend of mine “You know those moments when your soul swells and it just wets your eyes a bit.” When you’re overwhelmed by things that are just so good and real and true. How a piece of wood gets fashioned into art and a dead plank transformed into a meaningful demonstration of creation. How every person, however skilled, is a craftsman and has something beautiful to contribute, and here when I say beautiful, I don’t mean ‘try-hard’ beauty or ‘almost’ beauty, I mean it’s enough-to-move-your-soul beauty.

"What makes boatbuilding so fascinating is that very few people do it these days, we're rekindling awesome skills from the past that have been dying out in recent years!"
"I really enjoy the feeling of usefulness I get when learning to rehabilitate an old boat! My communication skills have improved so much since starting on Anchor & Sail"

The GalGael Grace

We’re cast into a crazy world
Wi’ many a sore disgrace
Where greed o’er turns compassion
And respect is laid to waste

Nae wonder then I linger here
Wi’ brethren mare distinguished
Who’s grasp on human kindness
Will never be relinquished

And share a cup and give a hand
Tae those who share this greeting
To be a kent face and earn a place
At GalGael’s weekly meeting

So as we eat, let all think well
On the value of this clan
That feeds our bodies, hearts and minds
To help us make our stand
