Out on the Water to Look at Some Old Boats
Up early today, I’m going out on the water to look at some old boats.
Found my third boat of choice, 37 ft Hodgdon Brothers William Atkins Elf design, price seemed ok on sailboat listing .com.
It’s in Maine and as you know I live on the west coast of BC.
The price seems just fine but I think I may be too slow, offer pending but nice boat.
We have a chicken shop in Ladysmith BC, this was my wife’s retirement.
She has cooking classes, she has chefs from sailing ships stop in on their time between boat moves, like from New York to Iceland.
Food and boats, how could one go wrong the wordly gourmet and yes boaters come in in droves.
It’s not a ships chandlers but she does try.
The 37 elf may go but I still have time, 45 has always bin a good number in Queen Charlotte Sound.
I spent meany winters in seas on 150ft boats that seemed small at the time but the 45ft works well in deep holes.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
