What to do with an old boat frame

This week I combined boating and gardening by planting an old boat frame in my garden. In it's next life, it will become a bean trellis. I put together a video of stills that I took while making the boat and put it on the build pages.

I too am thinking about retiring my W Greenland style SOF.

The skin is on its last legs and it's low volume and I wiggle into it. I no longer like that. My frame will end up mounted on stantions as a sculpture piece. For the last severa years I usually only took it out once a year out of patronage. I learned a lot building it and enjoyed doing it. I still love the frame on those boats. I remember feeling a let down when I skinned it.
