I've seen the husky tugboat "Authur Foss" several times at the annual Center for Wooden Boats 4th of july festivals. I don't know if she belongs to the CWB or not or who will spearhead the restoration. I bet the Community College boatbuilding school will have some hand in it - they built a new pilot house for the "Virginia" and some other work. They are currently restoring a fine old yacht that was burnt in the Shilshoe (sp?) fire last year.
The old Navy Reserve training center at the S. end of L. Union has been turned over to the city and it's being converted into a Maritime Heritage Center. They've put up some _serious_ new pilings etc. on the lake front there and last time I was at the CWB, there where several ships there that I had not seen before - all old.
Even the old sail timber freighter, the "Waiwona" (she of the seams 'calked' with moss - no lie!) has seen some action - she's been swapped from 'bow in' to 'bow out' and her new bowsprit is _finally_ in after some _years_ of working on it. Rumor has it that a full refit is a $10 million job though. The moss growing out many of her seams can't be good.
If you don't think for yourself, someone else will do it for you!
