I've been doing woodworking for years now. I got my start building decks and covered patios, from there I moved onto trim carpentry, framed houses and built custom doors. I graduated from the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building in 2008, where I learned to build and repair traditional wooden boats. We currently live on the Puget Sound in Washington state where I am working as a Shipwright, and I am the lead boat builder for a not-for-profit organization teaching local high school students how to build boats.

The boat hauled out today and is now on the hard. Just prior to the boat leaving the water, we had a chance to get on board and peek around and see what’s ahead of us. Then right at 12:30 pm the travel lift pulled her up and out. We spray...
