Depoe Bay Wooden Boat Show 2013

John Kohnen has posted lots of pics of the Depoe Bay Wooden Boat Show on the Pacific coast of Oregon, including this one of Dennis Banta, who is 6ft 2in, rowing his new tender to his stylish tug-style boat.
Reminds me of another tall person in a small boat.
But Dennis's boat is actually rather capacious and could fit two, although they both look very apprehensive.
But my favourite picture is of some kids in a couple of boats taken to the festival by Andy Linn of the Toledo Community Boathouse. At top right is their Mollyhawk, a very attractive sculling boat designed by John Welsford, about to T-bone Aurora, a canoe designed by Andy himself - the plans are here.
What I like about the picture is that every single one of both crews is laughing fit to bust. Rowing is fun!

Those kids bashed each other for hours. I'm afraid the pink boat did not hold up so well.

More photos on Doryman.

John Kohnen writes to say that the picture of Dennis Banta in Tiny Ripple is by Andrew Linn.
