Here are some pics. Not a very large event, but some nice boats and the people were friendly.
A very nice Pete Culler skiff
Interior of the Culler skiff. The rig is a spritsail.
One of the visitors trying a modified 6-hr canoe.
Another flat bottom skiff. Interesting combination of old and new. Cross planked bottom, with plywood sides.
The skiff, a nice looking kayak, and my pirogue.
A very nice traditional-built skiff, described as a stretched John Gardner design. Cypress planking for the sides and bottom, yellow pine keelson and frames, and elm for the stem and transom cleat. First time in the water. I was asked to help row it back to the dock, about two miles downriver. Picked a good time to row, bucking a good headwind, near whitecaps on the water, and in the middle of a downpour. I'd say it got a good christening.
