For the first sail of the season, I launched from Vanier Park at 4pm, and had about 8 to 10 knots of wind in English Bay. I cruised close to the Stanley Park shoreline out to Siwash Rock and back, then blasted up the opposite Kitsilano shore for bit into a freshening breeze, until it was getting late and I had to head back. Landed at ramp at 7pm.

One of the Handy Billy launches built at the School's Port Hadlock campus.

 

Harry Bryan, of Bryan's Boatshop in New Brunswick, Canada, designed the Handy Billy by blending famed designer William H. Hand's designs with modern power technology to meet the demands of discriminating boaters.

 

In Bryan's words, "We have taken hand's successful work and blended it with modern power technology to create a new design while always keeping the following principles in mind: 1) the boat must be seaworthy, 2) it should be highly efficient in its use of fuel, 3) it should be unusually quiet, 4) it must be good looking."

 

The Handy Billy is 18 feet long with a beam of 5 feet and a draft of 11 inches (17 inches with the 15hp gas engine outboard in the down position). A 21-foot version of the same boat was also built by the School.

 

It is a vee-bottomed launch, and is surprisingly fast largely, capable of running at well over displacement speeds, as a result of its moderate beam, narrow transom and appropriate power plant.

 

The School built these boats using western red cedar planking over white oaks frames on a douglas fir and mahogany backbone, fastened throughout with silicon bronze screws and bolts. Decks were douglas fir, usually finished bright.

 

The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding is located on Washington's Olympic Peninsula in Port Hadlock WA and is a private, accredited non-profit vocational school.

 

Our mission is to teach and preserve the skills and crafts of fine wooden boatbuilding and other traditional maritime crafts.

Scamp Camp #1, "Scurvy Dogs Team" Reunion 2013, Port Townsend, WA

 

The planned reunion of a bunch of Scamp Camp #1 boats didn't quite come as planned, Luna #162 wasn't quite ready for her first splash! No worries, we went to Port Townsend for the first weekend of Camp #4, anyway, so we could partake in the launch of Zephyr #161, the fine vessel built by Keith Nasman! While there, we took part in the inaugural launch of two (!!) Scamps (Zephyr and Skol, the beautiful product of Terry's work, from Scamp Camp #3), cruised the waters on an epic trip in Zephyr, and popped into the first day of Camp #4 to wish the next crop of scamplings a fruitful birth.

Fairing the bottom panel and garboard planks, in preparation for fibreglassing: plane, rasp, sand, fill. Then sand again.

JESTER's beam is quite wide for her length and makes for a very stable ride on a dinghy of only 9 feet long! Jack Fesenmeyer's experience as a gondola builder paid off when he designed his sailing dinghy - Sea Lion and Sea Horse models; wide beam like a catboat, no centerboards and a modified cut-out keel with skeg all add up to a swift, stable sailing vessel.

 

Thanks, Dad, for coming over for the weekend to help!! We mounted the UHMW runners on the skegs, and applied the first coat of topsides paint. A very good Scamp Saturday!

Red Lantern Rally: cruising Port Townsend Bay, WA.

- stitched pano, about 190 degree view, the sun rose at 6:10 am, this is at 7:20 am after a walk on the beach. Our little "Scamp" sailboats can be seen up on the beach, where we dried out on the falling tide and slept the night.
