Just want to share a snip of a recent article by the editor of WoodenBoat Matthew Murphy who joined Yukon for the Parade of Sail this Australian Wooden Boat Festival. Quote:….That invitation (to join Yukon) was a pleasant surprise. WoodnBoat published an article about YUKON in 2011, and the vessel since then, has struck me as one of the most impressive restorations we’ve ever covered….. Thank you Matt : ) To read the article from 2011 ‘From Salvage to Salvation’ follow link in bio.

Early start to try and beat the heat this morning. I was greeted by a beautiful covering of cobwebs. My old skippers used to say ‘webs in the rigging boy -Easterly winds’ . . . . . . #spiderweb #sails #oldwivestales #mothernature #early #morning #hottingup #beautiful #cobwebs #gaffrigged #woodenboats #boatbuilding
Salty Sue says... “Tarred with a mixture of pine tar, linseed oil and turpentine, these rope strapped turning blocks for the sheets aboard the longboats Townshend and Bear smell as good as they look. Continual maintenance is a demanding and rewarding part of keeping up the sail training boats in the Northwest Maritime Center fleet. The Artful Sailor Whole Earth Nautical Supply & Sail Exchange is happy to lend a hand as we did in the restrapping and restoration of these blocks. We are always eager and available to assist you in your rigging and sail needs with consultation, guidance, goods, tools and workshops. Take a gander at the upcoming classes on our website plus smell and see us at the Wooden Boat Festival, Sept. 6-8.” www.theartfulsailor.com #theartfulsailor #nwmc #porttownsend #longboats #woodenboats

Some of my hard working students’ projects from last week’s class at Woodenboat School in Brooklin, Maine, near Acadia. This is from an annual workshop I started there 9 years ago, as an accessible introduction to metalworking for woodworkers and boat builders. My goal is to have folks go home with comfortable skills in working strong and beautiful small metal projects with simple tools. They always rock it! . . . @woodenboatschool #woodenboatschool #mainesummer #lovemaine #adultsummercamp #brooklinmaine #silverbraze #heattreating #handtools #onthebench #woodworkingtools #navigationtools #woodenboat #woodenboats #customhardware #customtools #bevelgauge #chartdividers #forging #forged #layouttools #making #neverstoplearning #flatlaystyle #flatlay #toolflatlay #toolsofthetrade #woodworking #boatbuliding #boatshop #antiquetools
The @herreshoff_s_class Centennial is under way with @larchmontyc Race Week! Many of the Narragansett fleet headed down Long Island Sound to compete and even though the winds were light on this day, the racing was epic. To download the S-Boat episode go to the link in our bio. Thanks to @magic_sites for the update us on the races!
