MORBIC BUILDERS WILL KNOW THIS BEFORE THEY START, OR BY THE TIME THEY'VE FINISHED!

"Bad boats are built, surely, but not many of them. It can be argued that a bad boat cannot survive tide and wave and hence is not worth building, but the same might be said of a bad automobile on a rough road. Apparently the builder of a boat acts under a compulsion greater than himself. Ribs are strong by definition and feeling. Keels are sound, planking truly chosen and set. A man builds the best of himself into a boat—builds many of the unconscious memories of his ancestors."

From John Steinbeck 1941 | Sea of Cortez.
