Hopefully, everybody's New Year has started out swimmingly (no pun
intended). I know this to be the case for those who attended the Annual
Banquet & Meeting on January 22nd. A great time was had by all - for proof,
just check the photos on the website (www.woodenboatassociation.com
If you have additional photos you'd like to post, contact our Webmaster -
Richard Wolff. His email address can be found on the website.
Here's your chance to make good on your New Year's resolution (i.e. to become
more involved with the WBA.) Attend the February 17th Meeting!
David Kanally has prepared a multi-media extravaganza titled "Wooden Boats,
Iron Men - The Story of the Restoration of PT 658". We'll actually have live
audio feed from Portland, Oregon to hear directly from the team that restored
this 78-foot, Higgins-made PT boat. This was a 10-year project that returned
the boat to its original operating condition. This exciting presentation
will start promptly at 7:30 p.m., so you don't want to be late!
For a map to our meeting location, follow these instructions:

After David's presentation we'll focus the meeting on planning our 2005
activities. So, bring your calendars and ideas!
For a light meal, libation, and tall tales, join us @ 5:30 p.m. at
