Richard Guziewicz, who lives in southwest France, recently sent me photos of a Paul Fisher 50/50 he built - I should say ‘crafted’, rather than built, for what he has done is a work of art. You need only examine the photos to have an inkling of the exquisite craftsmanship. The photos make me feel I would like to caress ‘Brina’, for that is the name he has given her. I would like to run my finger over her highly varnished deck. Furthermore I would like to sit in this beautiful craft, hoist her sail and take her for a spin.
I’m flabbergasted by what Richard has done. I thought my ‘Caleb’ was well built, but when seen beside ‘Brina’, she looks plain and almost featureless.
What excites me is that Richard will be building a Paradox. I’m convinced she will be a joy to behold and to own.
Thank you Richard for sharing your photos, and thank you for giving permission to publish them.
