Thursday June 22nd 1st Day of an exciting Summer

Written by Jack van Ommen on June 22nd, 2017

This is going to be short, my ride to the boat is waiting. I’m off to the Wooden Boat Show in Mystic Seaport. I’ll probably be off the internet until Wednesday of next week, unless I make a stop along the way.

You know where to track me on my Garmin.

Here is a picture of “Fleetwood” with her new coat of paint on the house, deck and cockpit. This is at the Nautical Boat Marina on the James River in Portsmouth, Va. I’m in the terminal ward, note the second boat over, remains sticking up. And the abandoned sailboat next to me. I’ll post a video next week with the rest of the dying plastic boats. I have not been able to figure out why this marina and many others are reluctant to accommodate wooden boats. They sure are a lot less mess to get rid off. Snapshot 1 (6-22-2017 8-07 AM)DSC_5862
