2017 another year of building!

by on January 2, 2017

Well it has been a great year for progress on the Buttonswan project.  We now have 4 planks a side now and raring to add more.

There are new boats on the dock.  One of our members Alesandro brought his wood sail boat around 38 feet to the dock and is working on it. There is also the former 58′ RCMP vessel, Nadon which will be used for tours and meetings.  The Vancouver Maritime Museums’s Executive Director, Ken Burton was the commander when it circumnavigated North America.  (no picture yet) Thanks to Bruce (our member and wharfinger for the update and both him and Sheila send everyone best wishes for the new year!)

Alesandro’s Boat

Nightwind will be casting off this month and a new boat Winsome 111, a Lapworth 36′ built in Vancouver in 1959 by J.P. Taylor will be arriving.

The shed will be getting new windows (finally!!) as John has measured up and bought the wood and will get that project going this month.  Only other dock news is to not turn off the fresh water hose if it is running during the cold snap as it will freeze.  Thanks to everyone for a fabulous 2016 and look forward to lots more events in 2107.
