We moved to Port Townsend (our current woodsy heaven/hell) so my boyfriend could attend the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building (which has an amazing set of programs with great teachers, supportive staff, and wonderful facilities). It has been an amazing experience for him so far. He beams daily as he tells me of the struggles and successes with wood, chainsaws, and planes. A few days ago he sent to sea the first boat he worked on from start to finish (like he and his group had a blueprint and some wood – then they drafted it and put it together into a fully-functioning, totally floatable boat). Here are pictures of the boat, finally finished, being placed in water for the first time.
