Boats Out Of Water – A Suite Of Sweet Photos Part 1

Port Townsend Boatyard 

The boatyard in Port Townsend, Washington has a tradition of building, maintaining, repairing, and restoring wooden boats. The town has a tradition of woodworking in general and the boatyard’s history with wooden boats is a big part of Port Townsend’s identity. Boats are pulled out of the water for repairs and painting and return when the maintenance is finished. It is always changing and favors frequent visits.

When I visit with my camera I take pictures of some of the boats I find. There are all kinds and sizes from pleasure crafts and charter yachts to hard working fishing boats that frequent the waters off Washington state and Alaska. Many of the boats have colorful histories and I look for information about them if it can be found. I am attracted to the older boats especially if they are traditionally designed wooden boats. Above is the first selection of this series of photographs. It sure is a beauty and it has been in service since 1937.

    • That’s true but it’s better than sinkingI guess. I really like the reveal. I always wanted to see a water taxi from Venice because those things are big and they leave zero wake almost. I have a little bit of a nerd quotient about fluid dynamics and stuff.
      You know I have a typo up there it was 1931. That baby is pretty posh.
      I am digging a couple of real live-aboard antiques with rustic character.
