Wooden Boat Show Eve

Post by S. Weaver » Wed Jun 21, 2023 4:25 pm

Heading up to Mystic CT tonight to display on land per invitation. It hasn't rained around here substantially for weeks, but they are calling for rain all three days of the Show. IONA was built for rain, but I'm bringing my bilge pump after all ...

Some very interesting visitors stopped by: Marine engineers, designers, and my favorite, Jeff Rutherford, who performed the restoration of the SY Cangarda

Thanks for those pictures. And good to see your Launch and the interested people viewing it.
Meeting Jeff Rutherford was special! Canard remains my favorite steam ship.
I watched her restoration (on the internet) with great interest.
