Boatrides wonderful last weekend!

A wonderful time was had on Sunday when volunteers George, Anton and skiff builder Trevor trailed our Hunter runabout to the Humber ramps. The lake was a touch bumpy with 3' rollers but no problem! We headed around the point to the MCC and fellow volunteer and now Folkboat sailor Chris. After a lovely lunch on the balcony of the club, we haeded off in the boats.
Anton elected to go sailing with Chris and Lisa in "Puffin" - a beautiful sight out on the lake - and the rest of us headed off in the Hunter to give George and Trevor their first experience running an inboard.
We ran over to Ontario Place then part way up the Humber River - perfect day on the water. Later we headed back to Chris' club for a refreshment and to collect Anton. Back to the ramps to close a great day!
As for this week at the boatshop, here's what's up:
  • Trevor's skiff, more sanding and detailing - starting to look pretty good.
  • Lightning, add deck
  • 27 Shepherd, continue reworking fuel fill plumbing and tail end of the wiring.
  • 17' Shepherd, trailer needs to have other side wheelbearings done. Boat can come over from quarry for this.
