Thread Name: songs about building boats/ships?
Subject: RE: songs about building boats/ships?
Steve Romanoff's "Boats of Stone" on Schooner Fare's OUR MAINE SONGS. A personal favorite of mine mostly because it's a tribute to the New England stonecutting trade in the early 1800's and the early building of the major Northeastern cities. Appeals to me as a structural engineer, unsurprisingly. But there is at least one reference to those who built the boats themselves.
