This weekend's messabout is one that I've been looking forward to for quite some time. I'm really excited. It's called Pull and be Damned and it will be held at Seafarer's Memorial Park in Anacortes, WA.
Looking over the posts on the Woodenboat forum, it looks like there will be an impressive selection of drop-dead gorgeous sail and oar boats to drool over. There will be a potluck bar-b-que, and an optional overnight campout on nearby Saddlebag island.
The event is organized by legendary sail and oarsman James McMullen. I'm looking forward to hearing firsthand about his recent epic capsize off Port Townsend.
Hopefully the weather will hold out because I plan on taking lots of photos and videos!
