Email This Page to a FriendPreview: Beauty In the Hand of the Beholder
June 7, 2021
It’s all relative. A boat built with PVC pipe that may be beautiful to one person might be an eyesore to another.
And that eyesore might just become a thing of great beauty on a much grander scale as the story behind it is revealed.
When it comes to boats, Off Center Harbor has a strong sense of aesthetics, and ordinarily we wouldn’t hold Mark Forrest’s new boat up as “beautiful”.
That is . . . until we heard this piece on NPR about Mark and his boat. Once we understand the need and inspiration for the boat, the design begins to look pretty damn ingenious and remarkably useful. I bet Mar could teach us all a lot, and not just about boats.
