Paul Connor has also kindly sent us a set of photos of a festival dockside stroll – this time from the Lake Union Wooden Boat Festival at the Centre for Wooden Boat’s base in Seattle. Thanks Paul and sorry about the delay – I’ve been away sailing – it tends to happen at this time of year, so please don’t think the worst if the weblog goes quiet for a few days.
I particularly like the H12 1/2 – if anyone doesn’t I think they probably need to pray for their soul…
Paul is working towards building a double-ended skiff based on the plans for a double-ended skiff presented in the book Boatbuilding for Amateurs. Click here for more on this project. I’ve added labels where the boat concerned is identified.
If anyone would like to add any comments or information, please do so using the comments link at the end of this post.

Unknown – but it looks like a huge Paradox. Is it a heavy sharpie of the Hog Fish Lips type?
Some more photos from Intheboatshed.net regular Jeff Cole’s disk of splendid photos from the Australian Wooden Boat Festival at Hobart, Tasmania.
Looking at Jeff’s shots of cruising yachts is rather like taking a stroll around the docks at any show of this kind where most of the time, the casual visitor has only a hazy idea of what he or she is looking at. Sometimes the boats in question are beautiful, sometimes they belong to a particular age, and sometimes they spark one’s curiosity.
Jeff seems to be off-line for the moment – I trust he’s ok – but if anyone out there can add any information about the boats in these photos, I’d be delighted to hear from them. Please use the comment link below!
PS – Jeff has kindly risen to the challenge and added some explanations. Click on the comments link below, where he has explained many things. Thanks again Jeff – and no apology needed!

Intheboatshed.net regular Jeff Cole has sent us a disk of splendid photos from the Australian Wooden Boat Festival at Hobart, Tasmania some weeks ago.
Jeff has kindly sent us many photos and images over the past couple of years, and his interests range far and wide across the boating and shipping scene, I rather liked some of these steamers and motor-powered craft – and of course the steam driven outboard is a hoot. There will be more to come over future weeks.
Many thanks Jeff!
