Just wanted to mention these folks: Off Center Harbor.
They have a large collection of incredibly well-made videos about boats, boating, boat building, maintenance, and more. I just discovered them, myself, and have spent a bunch of evenings enjoying all their videos and blogs. Modest yearly fee… totally worth it.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch…
In addition to making steady progress on SKYE’s list of things to do, I’m building a new dinghy for SKYE — a PT 11 nesting dinghy from Port Townsend Watercraft. Heck of a neat design, and the kit is fantastic. Having a fine time putting it together… the precision of the pre-cut parts is astounding, and the excellent (thick as a phone book) manual makes it very easy to build correctly.
