Then if you're willing to learn the skills and take the time keeping a 1961 wooden boat alive (good grief, I was built in 1961... ), then I think you may have the boat bargain of the year, if not the decade. Having a Perkins 50 HP in a 35 footer has got to provide some feeling of security, and it's big enough to turn a decent alternator if you want to add radar/plotter and some toys.

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
saturday was a fun day for sailing. I did see a yawl in the distance while near Kingston looking towards Edmonds. not sure if it was you or not.

i also think the ferry you are refering to is the keystone, NOT kingston! Lot bigger ferries on the kingston Edmonds run vs the keystone/port townsend run!

Those are great shots, CC! I believe you when you cite the wind speeds...that looks like at least 35 knots constant in an enclosed body of water...the combo of "fat" whitecaps over very closely spaced waves is quite similar to Great Lakes "square" waves...the water wants to really roll, but there isn't enough fetch, so you get the "earthquake in a foot bath" effect. We only get "ocean" style rollers at the Toronto end if it blows like stink for two days from the east, which is only usually in October and November.

I think you need a slightly improved propane lashing, but it looks like you got a very good boat that has proven herself in pretty intense "maiden to you" conditions. Your son looks pretty casual at the helm there, but he also looks like a big boy who can handle being part of a classic boat dynasty. Nice stuff!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Twan's the smallest and youngest of my 8 kids. My two natural Sons are both over 6'. Yeah, he looks calmer than he was but he's hooked now. The lashing looks a bit suspect but it's tight. Just one of the things I have to look at with this boat.

Not bad for a $20 boat! Sounds like you gave the rigging a pretty stiff workout.

Umm... be careful what you wish for... sometimes they're granted, but not quite in the way you want or expect. Trust me, I know... Learned the hard way last year and ended up in the hospital.
