I always hankered after a garage/workshop/mancave where I could build a wooden canoe, small sailboat, or such.

Sounds like "Must Love Dogs" with the boat sawn in half to mount above the fireplace.

I wish I could build a boat. Anyone watch that show Mountain Men? Eustous and his buddy just built one and it was gorgeous!

I built a little aluminum boat for my son to play in the pond with, looks like a miniature John boat. Took a long time rig welding that thing up but worth it. Little thing will pull a wake behind it with a 24 lbs thrus trolling motor on it. Lol
