The Vancouver Maritime Museum’s annual fundraiser has just kicked off and tickets are $20 for one or $50 for three. The grand prize is a boat trip for two from Iceland to Greenland! (don’t worry – the boat is bigger than ours) All information is at https://vanmaritime.com/
Please consider supporting the museum, and good luck!
The museum has free admission tomorrow (Family Day), but I’d encourage you to become a member – it’s very affordable, and also gives you access to their talks and special exhibits.
Last week at the boat shed was more work on the stem and transom – this is painstaking work which we are willing to take slowly, to make sure to get it right! We got the notch cut in the transom for the hog, and got the transom clamped into position. We made a pattern for the stem, to help guide our shaping of that, and got the stem cleaned up.
Yesterday, we were lucky to get one of our members and neighbor at the dock (owner of Querencia) to take some video of our workday – nice to see action instead of photos for a change! Thanks Duane!
Last week after our work in the shed, a few of us took advantage of the beautiful sunshine, and got out in a couple of our boats. There wasn’t much wind, but enough of a breeze to keep us moving for a while, and it was SO nice!
The wind died off at the end, and we had to take to the oars to get us home. What a wonderful way to spend a sunny winter afternoon!
