Boats p.25

Mustafa and the other captains and the fishermen of the Fisherman’s Cooperative discussed where they would place the boat. I gave it to them after they told me how much they admired its form. When I left on 26 August they remained uncertain about whether to place it on the pier or in the teahouse itself.

The following April I would arrive in Istanbul to begin a search for a local boat there in what I'm sure will provide a wealth of new information about boats, their forms, uses, histories, etc.
