Re: [AtkinBoats] Sad news

Edward Epifani
 

Atkins boats will always have a special place in my heart, poured over the designs a a kid. They exude a perky,tough, cheerful optimism . There is a 45’ ketch in Eureka, immaculately maintained. Low cabin trunk with wide side decks over a deep slack bilged hull, fine entry. Two strake bulwarks, and The side decks make you feel safe and welcomed handling sail. Real sea boat.

Many years ago I owned a 24 ft Atkins gaff rigged hard chine sailboat called Tern.

Salty little craft with all the character an Atkins is noted for. On larger designs they used a keyhole pattern for interior bulkheads assuring strong support and a definite separation from compartment to compartment, depending on size. I found those design features special.

Yes very sad news indeed. It was through her dedication that the designs remain active  RIP

It has long been the plan to ensure the legacy of John and William Atkin's plans. All the plans are now in the expert care of Mystic Seaport, and will (hopefully) soon be up for sale there. She will be greatly missed by the wooden boat community.

I used to operate Atkins design boats on Crater Lake and worked on one of his cutters in the boat yard @ Port Townsend. A great designer. I'm sorry to hear of Pat's passing.

Sailed yesterday, coming in met Ken from Trinidad, with his Herreschoff tender designed for Marcopolo. Later Thorn, with his Oughtred sand piper, and another Oughtred with Craig and Vicki of Morro bay. Small craft warnings today, already 16-20. 20-35 this pm. Hope to make it to the top of the lake and blaze back down.

Toledo Wooden Boat Show -- Register Soon!

 

August 19-21st.

Just attended the Boat Show meeting. Things are moving along, but no important news to relate. Debbie is going to be sending out invitations to prior exhibitors soon, but you can get a jump on her by filling out and sending in an "unofficial" registration form I've put together. It should work fine, but if They need more information Debbie will get ahold of you. It's helpful for the Boat Show to know in advance how many boats are coming:

http://www.coots.org/mb/Toledo/2022-ToledoBoatShowRegistration.pdf

Debbie mentioned something about F******k too. There may be a Port of Toledo presence there, or maybe even something specifically about the Boat Show. You can email the Port to find out more: info@portoftoledo.org .

Should be a Good show this year. There's a lot of pent up enthusiasm for getting out and doing stuff with other people. The Loyalty Days parade in Newport had its biggest turnout in years, or maybe ever. If the Dread Virus doesn't roar back...

Hopefully everyone brings their own reusable items. 

If not, this is a venue where cupcakes would be a better option.

I took both motors out on the Willamette this morning for a run around Ross Island and down to the Hawthorne Bridge.  Used the Tohatsu for that run, and it behaved just fine, although it did not like running back to the dock against a full river current and outgoing tide.  Needless to say, the throttle was open significantly more for that return trip to Willamette Park. I believe I will go back to covering the black cowling with an old white t-shirt, perhaps soaking wet, to keep it from getting too hot in the sun.

After returning to the dock, we put the Honda on and headed upstream.  Wide open it hit 4 mph and was screaming.  Turned around, and still wide open, popped up over 7 mph before I let up.  It might have hit more, I can't say, I was watching all the debris in the water.  But it seemed quite happy to see service again.  :-)

So, John, if you want to use it, it's all yours. However, if the Tohatsu mis-behaves, I've got first dibs on your towrope. :-)
