Clint is on an awesome trip to Washington state. He has just finished his first Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. Attendance was excellent, interest in Chase Small Craft was high, and the weather was glorious. Many were engaged with the 17' Drake Rowboat on display, built by Kent Fosnes based in Port Angeles and a Deer Isle Koster built by Steve Borgstrom on Bainbridge Island. Both boats were sold as precut plywood kits and plans packages and cut in Port Townsend, WA.
It is more than likely that I will be back in Port Townsend next year for the 41th Wooden Boat Festival! I loved this event and the people.
Next Clint is off for the San Juan islands in a borrowed Drake 17 but after a little daysail in the Bainbridge Deer Isle Koster.
