John Pollack, left, was a Washington speechwriter when he quit his job in the 1990s to pursue a lifelong dream of building a boat entirely out of wine corks. Pollack enlisted the help of his childhood friend Garth Goldstein, right. Goldstein, an architect, "is a brilliant designer," said Pollack. "Garth got the idea in a millisecond."
