You beat me to it, Happy new year to all!

Resolution is to finish this boat and go fishing this summer.

My 2021 resolution is to go fishing, more than once, in SOMEONE ELSE's Great Alaskan this year ... I don't have one!

Happy New year! Maybe someday if there are enough GA's in the PNW we should all head to one of the wooden boat shows and have our own line up of GA's. My very aggressive target launch date is the end of May, 2021

If you take your boat to a show ... or a whole line of them show up ... I'll be there!

Sling shot distance from the Oregon Country Fair.  I live in Veneta, Oregon.  45 or so minutes east of Florence.

Happy New Year from another Oregon builder. Thanks to all for encouragement and help. I think a mass assembly at a wooden boat show would be great - I壇 be there as well. It would sure be fun to see a group of them together.

Every year there is a show in Depoe Bay. It would be a bit further but the Port Townsend Boat Festival in September if it still happens is a big wooden boat show. Lots of fun and activities after the show everyday.  I took my widebody there one year and sold a 6-7 Tolman kits. I'm sure if I took my Kodiak it would be a hot item.

The Depoe Bay Wooden Boat Show (and crab feed, wine festival) would be IDEAL ... and such a beautiful spot too!  Same goes for the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend, WA.  The Depoe Bay one is generally in the Spring, and Port Townsend in the Fall ... go to both!

Keep me informed. I live in Colorado and would make a trek to see all your boats. Plus it gives me a reason to get the boat out.

AND get it wet in the Big Salt!  You'd love going in/out of the entrance to the Depoe Bay lagoon.... :)  Search on YouTube for it ... boat needs a horn installed, FYI :D

I don't think I will be on the water for more than a year, but if there is going to be a GA gathering I am in.
