Four lives on the seven seas

It is a dream for one person; a tool or means for another and for a third she is a reason to "just be." She is a small vessel in the middle of a raging storm that brings people nearer to the basic questions of Life. The journey is one of aptitude, experiencing new harbors, and living life. A well-built vessel can defy time and travel, and live many lives. Legendary ship-builder Colin Archer built Inaé just for these reasons.
