Published for members of the Center for Wooden Boats

The Adventures of Johan Niklasson For a number of years I have been fascinated about the American Northwest coast, the Native culture and the undestroyed nature. One day I knew I would be there. In the end of March I finally made it to Seattle. To see what I wanted to see required a vessel of my own. Before, I had been paddling long distance too much. My wrists got sore. No more paddling for me the doctor said. Here I have come up with another idea. I bought myself a second hand canoe, paddled it to the Center for Wooden Boats and asked for some help to put on a sail and outriggers. The help I got was over my wildest expectations. After about a week I was off to new adventures. I was forced to go to Bellingham for some adjustments, then I was free like the bird, rather like the whale. The first week on the sea was marvelous. Southerly winds and a lot of sun. It was hard to find a camping spot all the way to Campbell River and Prince Rupert, British Columbia, except for a small place called Wagisla, generally referred to as Bella Bella. Instead of people there are wild animals - wolves, black bears, sea lions and dolphins. With all of them 1 had encounters of less than 10 meters. I had a black bear trying to get into my tent and a pack of wolves hunting deer just outside my tent. Because my tent can have a fire inside it I think the animals didn't feel my smell because of the smoke. When I got to Prince Rupert I managed to get a lift to Rose Harbor on the southern tip of Queen Charlotte Islands. South Moresby was magical. There were signs of old Native villages everywhere and the forest contained huge old trees. Here the black bear population was very dense but I only had serious problem with one of them.

The bear didn't want to leave my tent alone even with my shouting, so I fired my rifle in the air, and the bear took off. I wanted to live as much as possible off nature. Now I am tired of eating fish and shellfish, especially shellfish, because I ate a mussel with red tide in it. I got really sick for a while. After 2-3 weeks on the Charlottes, I decided to continue on into Alaska. I considered taking a shortcut on the outside of an Island. The weather looked good so I went for it. After a while the wind started picking up. I felt a shiver down my spine. The coast was all rocks. The route didn't look very nice to me. Because of the waves I was forced to go with them. The slightest wrong angle resulted in a wave breaking into the canoe. Fortunately the canoe was filled with flotation. I wouldn't go down because of water. No, my enemy was the rocks. Suddenly a gust broke the mast and the sail ripped to pieces. The broken sail got stuck in the outrigger. I had to go up wind to get it loose. I waited for a big wave, after that I turned and pulled the sail up but I was not fast enough. The next wave broke over me. It gave me an inner jolt of fright. I said to myself that if I would survive this I would quit and go home. Luckily I didn't flop over. But the rocks were getting closer and closer. I barely made the next corner. But there it was, my last hope on the other side of the bay, a small beach. The waves were getting higher and higher the closer I got. 1 was afraid of capsizing. When I was almost there I saw a rock 20 meters off shore. I managed to get behind it and had a relatively safe landing on the beach; Otherwise I would definitely have flipped over. When I later reached civilization, 1 1

heard that there had been 50 knot winds that day. I don't think I was out in that strong wind but it sure was some bad weather. After, I sold the canoe up there and hitched back to Seattle. Now, when I am back in civilization, questions appear in my mind: What was I doing up there? Why do I put myself through these things? Well, I think there is some unexplainable force in sailors that just forces us to go out there and be devoured by the elements, not necessarily with our bodies but definitely with our souls. It gives me deep relaxation to the mind that lasts for a long time. When the feeling is gone we just have to go out there again. It is like narcotics, almost impossible to quit. The wind whispers in my ears A song of long forgotten words Telling tales of long forgotten ways It carries me on a journey And there I travel looking Looking breathlessly. - Johan Niklasson

Johan is back in his home in Sweden. He is 25, tall, lithe and was last seen at CWB looking very tanned and with his long, blond hair pulled back in a pony tail. Johan spent his childhood summers sailing and paddling in the Swedish archipelago. He learned a lot of seamanship talking with the boatmen of the islands. Johan has been studying biology and anthropology, but now his academic focus will be traditional Swedish arts and crafts. Johan is a CWB member.


ED CLARK CLASSIC YACHT RACE

Participants in the 1994 Ed Clark Classic Yacht Race, July 3 Name Aura B-27 Dorade Fremont Rose Fresto Iwalani Laurie Ann Makai Maltese Falcon Minuet Myrica Nautilus Raindance Seawind Shangai Lil Ultima Wayfarer Yankee Clipper

CWB began sponsoring a wooden yacht racing event in 1991 as part of our Wooden Boat Festival and part of the Wooden Yacht Racing Association's series. We called it the Lake Union Classic Yacht Race. Awards were given for the first three places on corrected time, and there is a permanent trophy for the honor of finishing first. This award is a half model, made by Norm Blanchard, of the Seaborn designed sloop NEOGA II. This year the same race has a new name and award. We now call it the Ed Clark Classic Yacht Race. There is a new permanent trophy at CWB for 1st Place, corrected time. The trophy is a half model of Ed Clark's favorite boat, the Star. It was made by Paul Henry, and sponsored by the friends and family of Ed Clark. Ed, who passed away in 1993, was one of CWB's finest volunteers. He was a great sailor, and he loved to spend countless hours at CWB teaching others. Ed's teaching method was charm, wit, and unfaltering patience. Ed loved to race, and he approached it the same way he taught sailing — as a shared problem solving exercise, where good humor and fair play were the first priority. It seemed appropriate to remember Ed Clark each year at our Classic Yacht Race and to remember the standards of volunteerism, sailing and racing that Ed exemplified. Please come and see the permanent trophies at CWB's Boathouse.

To A l l 1994 Wooden Boat Festival Water Taxi Volunteers As "person in charge" of the water taxi this year, I want to take the time to personally thank all the hard working volunteers who helped make the water taxi at the 1994 Wooden Boat Festival the great success that it was. The work you all put in (from dock help to boat skippers and everything in between) helped the Center For Wooden Boats give a lot of people the wonderful experience of "wooden boating" first hand. Along with the standard fleet of rowboats (whose skippers had the hardest job), this year we offered sailboats. The wind was with us and the sailboats turned out to be a great draw. We gave a lot of folks their first sailboat ride ever and even got a few signed up for lessons. The classic Hacker Craft Nostalgia hooked those power enthusiasts into a boat ride. Long lines were waiting for a ride in Nostalgia. It takes a lot of patience to work with the public as you all did, and you all did a great job. Thank you again for your hard work, and I hope to work with you again next year. Sincerely,

Chuck Edwards

QUICK & DARING Please don't ask me what's the best boat that can be built in one day. That is like asking the meaning of life. Or maybe it is the meaning of life. At any rate, our Quick and Daring Contest was another example of "chac'un a son bateau." This year, the judging still favored speed of construction, few tools, cheap materials, showmanship, originality, and esthetic appeal. But a bit more importance was given to performance under both human and wind power. And a new category of design worth keeping was added. The last two items were meant to encourage entrants to think of Quick and Daring as a laboratory for new ideas of hull shape, materials and construction techniques that may be purchased at tomorrow's boat dealers. One other change this year was the generous sponsorship of Q&D by Kayak Lakeside Grill. If you would like to thank them, they are in the A G C building at 1200 Westlake N . , right down the lake from CWB. The eight entries were: JIBBERISH - Scott Durkee and John Lang. A classic V — bottom pram with long fore and aft deck, daggerboard and aft mounted mast. This boat took 6 hours to build. Its' sail and row performance was 2nd best. It was cheapest to build and 3rd in tool weight. BOB, Mark Bennett and Sean Connelly. This was the most traditional looking boat and the fastest performer. The design was a near clone of the Rhodes' design Penguin: upright stem, arc bottom. The team took their time building it right - 16 hours. A good portion of that time went into the 20' laminated, tapered mast. Their idea was to build a keeper. Their cost of materials and tool weight were the highest. After the show, Mark confidently sailed BOB off into the sunset. TIKI was the brainchild of two set designers- Carol Dean and Bob Boehler. They built a round bottom, displacement keel vessel, reminiscent of the elegant 18th century English plank on edge cutters. TIKI had a sawn plywood stem and keel. The frames were sawn plywood with bamboo longitudinals, covered with layers of muslin and layers of paint. The sails and hull were adorned with

whimsical and colorful scenes of fantasy sea life. Since TIKI's hull was narrow and deep, water ballast was assumed to provide stability, with the deep keelson as the ballast baffle. TIKI was tied for tops in originality and showmanship, 2nd in esthetics and 3rd in speed of construction. Unfortunately there was a little oopsy when the sails were raised and TIKI went tippy. The ballast forget to stay where it was supposed to and sails and keel exchanged positions about half way around the course.

washed up on the same beach. LOG JAM was the fastest to build and required the least tool weight. Sonotubes must be pricey because the material cost was third highest. LOG JAM showed structural problems during the parade to launching, in which the two hulls moved independently. Things didn't get better when the vessel was afloat, and before the race was completed the hull and outrigger were sailing on different courses.

QUARTER INCH JACK was a carefully built V — bottom catamaran by Paul Kuranco and Bill Miller. It had an attractive sheer and cleverly designed twin keels canted 30o, similar to the inland lakes scow centerboards. JACK rated about the middle in all the judging categories. Paul and Bill went about their business from beginning design to successfully rounding the course, quietly and with no sweat. KELL-SEA, Bob and Paul Perkins was an open pram with a long skeg, side mounted daggerboard and gaff catboat rig. It was the 2nd cheapest to build and 2nd lightest tool weight. It was the 2nd slowest to build and sailed the course, but slowly. KELL-SEA finished about midway in all the other categories. The project that would have got high grades if there was a "less-is-more" category: LOG JAM, Stefan Kristianson and Bill Murray. This was a catamaran with 18" diameter cardboard sono-tube (form for concrete post) for the hull and 12" diameter for the outrigger. The ends were plugged with plywood and sealant. The hulls were secured with gnarled driftwood tree limbs, fastened by lashings. The spars apparently 4

PONDEROSA PINE, Paul Sorenson and Mike Pethe. This was a flat bottom, slab sided canoe with low aspect dipping lug rig. It was originally designed as a 16' vessel, but due to the cost of clear 1x12 pine for the sides, the team opted to make it a 12' vessel without widening the 3'beam. PONDEROSA was 3rd fastest in building time, and about down the middle in all other categories except performance. The crew could simply not keep the boat upright. Out of frustration, Paul Sorenson, fully clothed and really


soaked, swam the fastest fifty yard butterfly I've ever seen. The judges wondered why the crew didn't tow PONDEROSA around the course, as the human powered portion of the race - they might have won. SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION brought in their design at the last moment of the deadline, which might explain its name. Brad Rice and Catherine Trzybinski built it, to Brad's design. It was a sleek, lean, classic skiff with V — bottom and transom. In order to get the job done quickly, the SPONTANEOUS team used lightweight longitudinal stringers over sawn bulkheads, covered with aircraft fabric. This was similar to TIKI except the interior was unlike any boat I've ever seen or dreamed of. It was filled with a sort of sleeping bag stuffing and covered with the same aircraft fabric as the hull. The fabric, inside and out, were shrunk to a wrinkle free fit with heat gun. The interior became a boat shaped mattress. Hmm ~ Think about the name again. Anyway, Brad and Catherine embarked on SPONTANEOUS wearing pajamas and brought a variety of stuffed animals to enjoy the ride. SPONTANEOUS might well have won the sailing and rowing performance, but lacking adequate bracing, the long narrow hull flexed like a snake. The jib was set upside-down initially, which also lost some racing time. She tied for first in showmanship, third in racing and esthetics, and fourth in building time. Three boats did not finish the course and were penalized. The awards were: 1. JIBBERISH 2. SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION 3. QUARTER INCH JACK 4. KELL-SEA 4. BOB 5. LOG JAM 6. TIKI 7. PONDEROSA PINE The Best Q & D judged by the People's Choice was BOB, by a majority of one, with TIKI and SPONTANEOUS tied for second. Once again, the spectacle of building the boats, the builders trading comments with the visitors, and the sailing race was one of the most enjoyable elements of the Wooden Boat Festival. Without the imagination and confidence of the participants and sponsorship of Kayak Grill, it wouldn't have happened. - Dick Wagner.

April 24, 1994 Oh, what a marvelous day to wake up the morning and turn back the hands of time. A chance to take a cruise, a spring cruise, to learn and discover the history of Lake Union in the 1930s. It was a cool, yet crisp, day when many of us gathered to enjoy CWB's annual Spring Cruise, a historical trip around the Lake. We split up into several boats and were on our way along the shoreline. We were able to recognize many of the existing buildings such as: City Light Plant, Lake Union Dry Dock, and Blanchard Boat Company. However, many of the sites had been changed, lost, or forgotten, But today was a day to imagine and remember the way the lake was in the 1930s. While touring the lake in the Blanchard 33, we were told story after story of the businesses that existed and the interest, beliefs and problems that faced the different industries. At the end of the trip I had a different perception of Lake Union, an insight into the history of my surroundings. A beautiful 5

day, a day of awakening, to a deeper understanding of Lake Union: 1930. Tonya Keel Hamman Tonya & Jerry Hamman are CWB members, wooden boat junkies, & live aboard their 59', 1936 William Hand designed motor sailer.

December 10 - 15 (Saturday Thursday) BUILDING THE TRADITIONAL SKIFF Fee: $350/$400 9:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m., CWB Boatshop Instructor: Rich Kolin "Wooden skiffs are the flannel shirts of boats: familiar, comfortable, rarely celebrated but uncommonly useful and lasting. They are part of our culture every place where water collects deeper than your shin." During this week at CWB, Rich will take four to six students in quest of this 'feel' with the construction of the most basic, honest skiff of all. His students will craft a 12-foot rowing skiff from blueprints, and maybe an eight foot pram too if there are enough willing hands. (But prams are another story, aren't they?) The boat(s) will be from Rich's own designs, with lapstrake planking and cross-planked bottom. Rich's six-day class is a special opportunity for those seeking an introduction to boatbuilding. From sharpening your tools to launching the finished boat, oars and all, the. class takes only two thirds as long as many offered for more elaborate small-craft. Upon completion, the class will participate together in launching and then the finished skiff will go into the livery as a one of CWB's traditional exhibits.

February 4 & 5 (Saturday & Sunday) LOFTING WORKSHOP Fee: $115/$125 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. CWB Boathouse Instructor: Eric Hvalsoe Students will loft a classic Davis boat from a table of offsets.

February 11-19 (Saturday - Sunday) CARVEL WORKSHOP - DAVIS BOAT Fee: $550/$600 8:30 a.m.- 5:30 p.m. CWB Boatshop Instructor: Eric Hvalsoe Students will build the classic 16' Davis Boat featured in our monograph. The Davis Boats were a double-ended Alaska fisherman's boat. 'Three generations of Tsimshian Indians built the finest little boats you can imagine in Metlakatla, Alaska". 'The boats were an immediate sensation and were largely responsible for launching a new hand-troll fishery in Southeastern Alaska... Fishermen would buy a pair of oars in Ketchikan, come to Metlakatla in the morning and say, 'John, I'd like to have a 14-foot boat, and I'd like to have it this evening.'" (Excepts from the Davis Monograph, CWB) The instructor is a nationally recognized boat builder and designer and has run dozens of CWB Workshops. Basic woodworking skills are required. Maximum 7 students. NOTE:Fees indicate member/non-member costs. A $100 non-refundable deposit is required with registration for all boat building workshops, with the balance payable one week prior to the workshop.
