    Had a great time at the show; the sun finally made an appearance Sunday. Beautiful boats everywhere.

    Bruce - thanks for the ride in Bingo, what a blast. Loved the beach drive-by you did Sunday afternoon - you were a big hit with the folks at the bar!

    Wojo - thanks for stopping by and introducing yourself, I really enjoyed chatting with you. Looking forward to seeing your boat in the water!

It likely won't carry as many provisions for a long voyage, but would be OK for 2-3 weeks, at least. I was quite taken with it.

    It was, as usual, a great show. The only disappointing bit was how few of the WBF folks showed up for the EBS. We had a great time, anyway, but I always enjoy seeing the forum folks, and especially meeting some of the one's I don't yet know.

    One of the few presentations I attended this year was Howard Rices. Definitely worth it. If you haven't followed his journey, check it out - they've moved on to the next phase, and look to do some good in the world as part of it.

    SO MANY wonderful boats.

    Wiz - it was a particular pleasure to see you and J. Great to meet your buddies, too! I'm just sorry I didn't track you down for a ride. Seems like I never get around to everything...

    Great photos all.

    Sorry to have missed the WBF EBS at the Wee Nip, but we went to see Matt Rutherford's presentation. Didn't realize that it's available for streaming from several sources. http://reddotontheocean.com
    It would have been very easy to have given up on him as a teenager. He's lucky to be alive.

    I found the set up day (Thursday) fascinating. After situating my boat near the cafe, we just sat back for the next 5 hours watching the boats come into the basin. It was amazing how quickly the basin filled up as well as how well the soft sided "tugs" worked together to maneuver the bigger boats. we had a great vantage point from which to view the action. Here are just a few photos. Pete

    Yes, the harbormaster, and all the volunteer wranglers, really do an impressive job.

    I'm not one to talk regarding posting easily viewed photos here, but clicking on links repeatedly to see them gets old fast. I suspect that Facebook's Woodenboat Forum page is getting to be more and more popular relative to this site, [12,000 members signed up there since January 3 (this year?) with 4 admins], if only because drop and dragging photos and creating albums there is simple as pie.

    Emily Ruth and I had to cancel at the last minute. So sorry to have missed out this year. We'll be back.

    Thanks so much to all for posting photos.

    Reminds me of one of my favorite Wooden Boat Festival entries, back in 2007:



    Gotta keep fighting to keep the varnish from taking over!

    For some reason I couldn't upload my WBF photos to Flickr, so I stuck 'em on Facebook instead. Here's a link to the album.

    I am sad to have not made it this year, but there are a lot of things on my plate at the moment, 2 months in Punta Arenas as a support for Howards expedition started the year with a bang, then the idea for the "next phase" and I'm involved in that, plus had to do something about a long term health issue ( done now, successful) and am working on the Voyage of Southern Cross project with Howard and the rest of our team.

    Check it out here, its quite something. https://www.voysc.com/

    Its been around a few years. But, much like here, there's only a handful of regular contributors. Probably only a few hundred active people in all. It's just a simpler interface, but it also doesn't easily allow for longer conversations.
    There's the plan, then there's what actually happens.

    I got to bring the Admiral and The Shop Assistant to the festival this year. The Assistant's presence required an abbreviated visit, but it was productive. He got to geek out over boats with me, which was a lot of fun for this Dad. Then we went sailing on Ariel of Victoria for the Schooner Race. Ariel is the Big Blue Ketch. Thanks to everyone who said hi to Bentley.

    Posted this over on the Facebook forum. It's not actually from the Festival but it was the sight that greeted me next day at the Port Angeles ferry terminal at dawn as I waited to travel back to Victoria.
