How could we know, that we would spend three long years in Ireland! When god made time, he made plenty of it, went a popular Irish saying. Anyway, there was enough time, to build another boat. I built it on spec. First of all, there happened to be a revival of the old Hooker fleet going on, so one could suspect a certain demand. Also, we had the address of a man, who was supposed to be interested in acquiring such a craft, given to us by a druid. Looked like we only had to convince the good man of his interest.
