Welcome home, Nuance. After a September adventure in the islands Howard and Nancy eased into their slip just in time for Oyster Run weekend and just ahead of the predicted stormy weather. Check out the clear bottom on the Seward kayaks. I guess you could claim that they are made locally. Chemainus is really nearby, just on the other side of the border.
I was saddened to hear that Legacy, my dock-neighbor for many years, has been sold. She is a 1999 Norstar 30. Built to last in Bellingham. Look close at her brawny Northwest lines. There are several generations of boatbuilding history written there. Word has it that after a few months on the hard she’s moving to Skagway.
