So proud of my 16 year old... who will be on a wooden boat building team at the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Show this weekend (Sept. 5-7)
Every year the PT Wooden Boat Show hosts a boat building contest - starting with scraps of wood Friday morning at 8:00 to launch of the completed boats on Sunday at noon. The guys that asked Morgan to be on their team run the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Center shop and won the contest last year, so it is a huge honor for them to include him! Expecting long days from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm, lots of intense physical labor as well as some pretty terrific boat building skills!
If you happen by, take lots of photos of Morgan, but don't expect to talk with him - they will have a spokesperson standing by to answer questions and prevent the craftsmen from being interrupted!
Of course - I'll post lots of photos!
