Scrapping , being cheap or Eco friendly
Building our place over here in the Bahamas can be very expensive if you cannot do all the work yourself. We have done 98% of the work here with only short term day help with a concrete pour or when plastering. The most fun thing for me is collecting drift wood from along the shore line as we go about exploring . This wood is all in pretty good shape. What we do is flip the board over to use it's old hidden side and give it a new life. The bonus is most boards come with their own nails !
All this costs us is some labor a little gas and some imagination to where it will all go.
A $30.00 new board or the same thing with a little history behind it for free? What would you do?
Our dinghy can hold up to 1,500 lbs easily. So it's just a matter of stacking and the sea state getting back home.
Ok ... Now we need some to go here and over there.
This walk way all from the shore line.
