The building of a Seattle houseboat from the keel up. Caratello is a 44 foot steel hull with a two story house. Only about 750 square feet of living area, but what do two people really need? A caratello is a small wine barrel that is used in making a dessert wine called Vin Santo. Traditionally cantucci (a cookie) is dunked in Vin Santo and eaten. Gotta love a culture that eats cookies with booze! Caratello will use the ancient tradition of using wine stores for ballast, nice!
