R2AK 2017 Sponsorship
Another year, another grueling race to Alaska. If you know nothing about it check out their website. This will be the 3rd annual event, a long (motorless) race from Port Townsend to the northern state.
This year we have sponsored James and Carrie Betts of Team Chum! James said of our donation:
The rudder blank has worked out fantastic, and we now have a much lighter and stronger rudder for our adventure.
Good Luck in June!

We had a couple here last nite and he does a fair bit of woodworking. He could not resist running his hands over the wood several times. Saying how do they get the joints so tight and such a fine finish on it? Great job.
The three guys are great friends of ours. The dad is on the left and two of his three sons are on either side of me. They have a cattle ranch north of us and are grain farmers as well.
Made easy work of carrying our island top.
