Like a boat out of water

Happy summer everyone. Summer in Canada must… absolutely must, involve a canoe at some point. For those who are unable to gain access to a canoe or a rowboat or are afraid of the water or are land-locked or just look at things a bit differently there is a solution. Suspending a boat on your ceiling isn’t for everyone but it is one way to bring the boating life indoors.  I’ve gathered for you six examples of boats stuck on ceilings that are so interesting and original they will make you look up and say… “I wonder”.
