Over in the large building called 'Wharf 7', alongside the tall ship 'James Craig',
is a workshop where one of her masts is currently laid out for work.
It was a lovely scene of 'boaty' clutter, and I settled into
the corner and sketched the guys at work.
I think I will make a large watercolour painting of this scene -
it is evocative of the Sydney Heritage Fleet's whole ethos.
