Look closely at the background. See anyone you recognize? Granted, she didn’t have her flying bridge then and her mast was much taller, but yes, that’s our girl Beagle (later known as Katherine Jane) floating in the distance.
I was tickled when my new friend Jim (who motored over to visit up in Friday Harbor) found these old photos and sent them along.
We’ll see him again in September at the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend, where we have been accepted as an exhibitor in the show. I’m really looking forward to that trip! I’m sure I’ll learn a tremendous amount ~ the folks there really know their stuff and I’ll be sure to pick their brains over cocktails on the aft deck.
