The Grenadines are a small group of islands in the Lesser Antilles where the traditions of boatbuilding were once crucial to the survival of local communities skimming a living from the sea. Hundreds of sailing vessels were once launched here, more than anywhere in the West Indies. Alwyn Enoe is one of the last boatbuilders practicing a trade passed down the generations from Scottish settlers in the 19th century. He is approaching his 70s and with no more orders coming in, he decides to build one last sailing sloop hoping that his sons will continue the trade.
