After a few minutes at sea, Wilson spotted Rieff backing his truck and trailer up to the water; it was time to go. Wilson reluctantly redirected toward land. He’d be back soon, though. In a few days he and Sherry would be on their bigger sailboat, for a two-night trip they’d planned to Mount Desert Island. They’d see some friends, catch an art show–just get away. When they’d return, Brooklin would be waiting. And just like always, as they’d be lumbering along the final stretches of the Reach, WoodenBoat’s shores would come into focus. Wilson’s office, too. Soon, his mind would return to the land. There would be work to do.

    Living in a country which throws things away with casual abandon I admire people who fix things up. For that reason and others Jon Wilson has long been one of my heros. Almost single handedly he rescued the art and science of wooden boat building with less financial backing then most nonprofits pay to have someone design their logo. Not content to rest on those well earned laurels he then founded Hope Magazine, a welcome haven from the never ending emphasis these days on negative events and horrible people. Now he has turned to restoring the most important attributes of human consciousness: Faith & Hope.

    I’ve only met Jon once. I was working as a grunt in an Ellsworth bookstore and he came in to buy a book on learning French. Soft spoken, mild, self effacing pretty much sums up my impression of him.

    Heck of a guy, heck of a guy! Not to worry Jon you’ve more than earned the space you are taking up on planet Earth!
