Boats

The number of vessels in the boat yard have been dwindling, as the summer season starts. Here in the Escapee park, boats are coming out of storage and getting cleaned up, likely for the crabbing season which starts July 1.

I watched something interesting the other day in the boatyard: a large sailing yacht was brought on a truck and lifted off for re-assembly. The boat was about 50 feet long, full keel, and wide enough that it was a wide-load on the highway. It came from Florida. What do you suppose it costs to truck a boat like that from Florida to Port Townsend?

I can imagine this: starting in PT, spend about 6 months or so sailing it back to Florida. Not a bad trip at all, but that truck trip must have been a killer.
