What happened off one of the fish factories near the "new" Moe's in Newport while the satellite was taking this picture? Was someone doing a little dynamite fishing?

Very nice looking skiff. I'll ask around. Thanks

Pat built the boat to William Atkin's Scandal design from the 1920s, but
using plywood planking. Scandal was designed to get "high" speed from
the 3 hp. outboard motors that were the norm Back Then, but also be a
useful everyday boat. Pat's Scandal worked very well, going "fast" and
being a good boat for just messing about:

http://www.atkinboatplans.com/Oar/Scandal.html

The article Pat wrote for Duckworks pretty well says everything about
the construction and performance of his Scandal:

https://www.duckworksmagazine.com/07/projects/scandal/

Pat's boat is built very well, but he didn't use the best quality
plywood. His son pulled it out of storage the other day and it was dry
and in excellent condition. It's on a modified lightweight Hobie Cat
trailer and comes with an early '70s vintage (or thereabouts, see
pictures) Johnnyrude 4 hp. motor that ran good when it was parked, and
has been stored in the shop. Kay said there's a set of oars from their
Rapid Robert that she'll throw in. If I didn't already have too many
boats I'd be awfully tempted to buy the Scandal. <g> It's a handy sort
of boat to have around. Quick and easy to launch and retrieve. Doesn't
use much gas. Good for poking around the interesting corners we Coots
like. :o)

Some photods taken by Pat and Kay's son. Chad, after Scandal (it's the
boat's name as well as the design) after she was uncovered:

The motor is a 1969 Evinrude 4HP “Yacht Twin”. Those things are just
about indestructible, and the parts that can fail are still available.

There were four containerships in Holmes Harbor a few days ago when we cruised down Saratoga Passage. According to the Coast Guard, HH is viewed as an overflow option, used when other sites closer to terminals are at capacity.


Re: Containership Backlog

Jove Lachman-Curl
 

Yes, I had an adventure.
I jumped on a spare spot for a sailboat delivery from LA to Seattle.
There is a delivery captain I know online who posted on FB needing a spare spot filled.
1200 miles, 9 days on the water. As it was a delivery and 3 out of 4 of us had places to be in the days after, we pretty much booked it the whole way, and deal with what came up, The captain picked a nice hole in the weather so we got some south and west winds for about half of the trip. including 18 kt broad reach down the straight. 
I learned A LOT. and saw whales, dolphins, albatros. and many more things. I also was out on the foredeck at 2 am tightening a preventer line a couple times.
Halberg Rassy 42F.
It was quite a time. I plan to do a write up this weekend, and I'll send some photos.

Well, one less than there was I guess <g>. Don't know where they ended up, my understanding is that HH is pretty marginal anchorage for these huge boats.
