Joel White was a master of this ancient art. Son of the legendary writer E.B. White, he created designs as sublime and graceful as his fathers prose.Six months after being diagnosed with cancer, Joel White began designing the W-76, his final masterpiece. Douglas Whynott spent a year at Brooklin Boat Yard, observing as the design took shape, first in sketches and then during the painstaking building of the wooden craft.A Unit of Water, A Unit of Time is a poignant depiction of a genius at work even as he faces his own mortality, and the people devoted to his art.

It evokes the devotion to boating passed down from E.B. White, as well as a maritime community whose lives keep a vanishing world alive.
