I don't see an "event" listed about the Wooden Boat Festival 2014.  Is it scheduled?  Will there be a new poster?  Just wondering.Continue

Noooo!  Had to store the boat outside for 1 1/2 years.  Tightly tarped to protect it but somehow water got inside.  Now I have mold from stem to stern.  Bought one of those "cloth" garages so it is protected but somewhat "open".  Looking to move soon.  Hopefully will find a place with a shop so I can work on it.

I had the Out West boat at that show in 2008 after meeting and talking with Roger Fletcher at a fly fishing show in Seattle.  Every other boat that year was a vintage drift boat or a new, traditional McKenzie style boat, and I really felt out of place. I think they were looking for traditional examples, so I haven't been back. We have taken it to Depoe Bay one year and to the Wooden Boat Show at Port Townsend twice. I appreciate your kind comments!  Rich

Be prepared for a lengthy process as the wood has to be completely dry before installing repair plugs and fiberglass.
