are some photos of various boats that were on display
in mid-August in Saginaw, Michigan. The small wooden craft
symposium was sponsored by the Great Lakes Small Craft
Assoc., Saginaw County Parks, and Gougeon Brothers - makers
of W.E.S.T. System epoxy. Although a rather small turnout,
(weather called for everything but snow that day) those
that were there showed a very nice example of "artwork"
as well as woodworking.
Sorry but I wasn't able to get details
on the boats - or their builders.
Since I am "into" the radio controlled boats,
it looks like next year they may expand the areas and
include some of our little boats as well.
A Bolger 'Queen Mab';
a 7 foot sailboat, foot steered,
and unique mast raising/lowering idea.
