Progress on the Buttonswan and our new boat!

The Buttonswan project is going to pick up speed now that everyone is getting back from the summer sailing season and ready to work.  On November 5th there will be a planning session down at the dock so we know what is ahead and can prepare supplies and tools.  Here are a few photos of the progress.

Robert G Allan of Bowyer Island donated this sweet 12 foot rowing/sailing dinghy to our club.  It has been in his family for 30 years.  A bit of TLC and it will be ready for the 2017 sailing season.  Who will win the sailing race….Ragna or the new boat?  Oh that is right we now have two boats with no names.  The Buttonswan and our new boat…perhaps a contest this spring.
