Getting to know you...

2009-11-12 Center for Wooden Boats

A long day spent inspecting, inch by inch, inside and out, each nook and cranny of a 26 foot hull.  Valves, bilges, sealing, chain plates, decking, pin rails, spars, sails, flares, pintels and gudgeons, red lead, batteries, fuel filters, through hulls, zincs, and on and on and on.  Brilliant, cold air, motoring over to the haul out along the ship canal on that rarest thing, a clear day in a Seattle November.

I won't see the survey for several days yet, but overall, this boat is in about as good a shape as a 16 year old wooden boat can be.
