Well, who would expect it. My schooling in Marine Carpentry as ended early. I was supposed to finish in December, but one of the instructors got a call from Dunbar Marine in Seattle. They were looking for one more person to add to their "wood-only" boat shop on the Ship Canal. The lead boat instructor told me to go meet with Roy, who by the way started building boats the year before I was born. So that’s a long time.
Short story, Roy and I hit it off, and I started today. The folks at school are just going to mark me "present" for the next month or so. My first assignment, reef and caulk the teak deck on a 60 foot sailboat that was built in Seattle in 1928. Very cool boat. The s/v Nativa. I’m exhausted, but I’m also thrilled to help bring this beautiful historic sailboat back to like new condition.
Aside from that, life goes on. Looking forward to the holidays.
