Marine Diesel Engine Maintenance and Troubleshooting: a 6 hour-workshop with Nigel Calder
$125 per person
Buy Tickets at: https://woodenboat.org/special-events/

The diesel engine is a critically important piece of safety equipment aboard any cruising boat. Tech guru Nigel Calder, author of the best-selling Marine Diesel Engines (now in its third edition, and used as a text book in numerous diesel classes) brings his unique brand of humor to a seminar for boat owners, both power and sail, that want to get the most out of their time on the water. Distinguishing between contemporary and older diesels, Calder details often-overlooked critical installation issues, and takes a careful look at fuel, oil, cooling, airflow, and powertrain systems, describing in detail all normal maintenance procedures together with basic troubleshooting techniques for common diesel engine problems, defining what the untrained boat owner can reasonably be expected to do and what should not be attempted. You will come away from this seminar with an enhanced understanding of your engine and the confidence to carry out routine maintenance, which alone will save you the price of admission. No previous experience is required.

Writing, Blogging, Vlogging and YouTube – Can it Add to Your Cruising Life? A 4 hour workshop with Lin Pardey
$99 per person, or $150 per couple
Buy tickets at https://woodenboat.org/special-events/

Can you top up your ‘freedom chips’ by sharing your cruising life with others? No matter what format you use, it all starts with storytelling. But how do you make your story stand out from the rest?
Lin Pardey will share tips and ideas on what nautical readers and viewers want to know. You’ll learn ways to ensure your photos, diagrams and video footage add information to your stories and attract attention. For those interested in selling articles to print and online magazines, she’ll show how to get noticed by editors, ways to present work that sells and ideas for expanding your markets.
Book creation and publishing will be covered, including the realities of self-publishing vs traditional publishing.
The nuts and bolts of blogging, podcasting and producing your own YouTube channel will be covered with up-to-date information provided by guest speakers via video. Desiree and Jordan of Sailing Atticus who have a quarter million followers provide helpful information, and the lessons they learned as they built their channel. The crew of Expedition Evans, relative newcomers with only 100,000 YouTube subscribers, will add their experiences.

Included is a discussion of the time investment, financial return, and pleasures you can expect along with the pitfalls and the practicalities of adding writing, blogging, photography and video to your cruising life.
A special extra is offered with the Port Townsend course – each attendee can arrange for a 30-minute personal one-on-one discussion of their potential projects with Lin Pardey, either during the course of the festival or by phone.

Boat electrical systems design, installation and troubleshooting: a 6 hour workshop with Nigel Calder
$125
Buy Tickets at https://woodenboat.org/special-events/

Electrical systems are now the number one cause of problems on boats that have anything more than rudimentary electronics. Most problems can be traced to inadequate design and/or poor installation. Tech guru Nigel Calder, author of the best-selling Boatowner’s Mechanical and Electrical Manual (now in its fourth edition) will begin with a description of key design criteria that must be met if a DC system is to meet the needs of the boat owner. In the process, he will reference some of the newer technologies that are likely to transform the performance of electrical systems in coming years. Then he will delve into basic installation requirements that comply with boatbuilding and safety standards, but which unfortunately are often not met; Nigel has numerous examples from brand-new boats! This includes the important and often neglected provision of adequate over-current protection. We will round out the day by looking at simple multimeter troubleshooting techniques that can be safely conducted by any boat owner. This seminar is designed for the inexperienced and requires no prior knowledge, although it will be challenging for some. It will help you understand your own electrical systems and to nip many common problems in the bud. Attendees will come away with an understanding of core design and installation requirements, and the ability to perform simple troubleshooting techniques that will enable the majority of electrical problems to be rapidly identified. The overarching goal is to raise the confidence levels of boat owners with today’s increasingly electrically-loaded and complicated boats.

Transitioning to an Offshore State of Mind: a 3 hour workshop with Lin Pardey
$60 per person, or $100 per couple
Buy tickets at https://woodenboat.org/special-events/

You have the dream, you have the boat, you’ve explored your home waters, maybe you’ve even cruised beyond Desolation Sound or down the Pacific coast. Now, how do you prepare yourself for stepping beyond coastal cruising? How do you know you are actually ready to go offshore? Lin will discuss vital topics to help you feel confident crossing oceans. Storm tactics and preparing for storms will be covered, along with the attitudes, preparation, and gear you’ll need to ensure failures don’t derail your plans. Discussions of often-overlooked aspects of offshore voyaging, like ensuring you and your crew can get enough sleep, will provide plenty of food for thought. This course will encourage you to make that leap so you can experience the adventure of crossing oceans.
The seminar is divided into three sections:
  • Ensuring you are ready to transition from coastal cruising to crossing oceans
  • Making your boat unstoppable
  • Preparing for and handling storms at sea

In the years of COVID, Greg has run a number of wild and scenic rivers and most recently took a wooden boat through Hells Canyon on the Snake River - the deepest river canyon in North America. In addition, he just competed in the MR340 - the longest river race in the world rowing one of his hand crafted wooden boats over 340 miles on the Missouri River. Capturing these adventures with photos, video's and writing is a passion as he seeks to connect audiences with some of the most beautiful and treacherous rivers in the country.

Panel: Designing for Solar Cruising
Join solar experts Sam Devlin, Alex Borton and Joe Grez for a fun and informative panel about solar cruising!

Whether it's a power boat or an auxiliary sailboat, we all were raised to think of having a fixed fuel capacity that can run out. But there is actually enough energy from the sun to power a solar boat without drawing from its battery at all. This makes a modern solar boat one of the best options for distance cruising. Well designed solar boat speeds-made-good compare favorably with sailing. With solar boats, you hear the wind, waves and animal life, and live with the tides. It's a better connection to the environment and to our rejuvenation on the water. If this sounds interesting. Sam, Alex and Joe are ready to share what we know about solar boat designs, cruising styles, and solar propulsion technology. There are very few production solar boats available today but there are awesome custom solar boats with a demonstrated voyaging pedigree. So this will be a discussion. Topics can evolve as we go- bring your questions and experiences. Some areas of interest may be crising styles, how to manage refilling as you travel, refilling during a layover, best boat designs, charging at a dock vs from the sun, propulsion, solar, battery and management technology, planning a solar cruise, etc. See you there!

Building a 38-foot cold molded boat
Catch the inside scoop about people currently building a modern 38-foot cold-molded wooden boat in a backyard workshop. Adventurers Wendy Hinman and Garth Wilcox spent 7 years sailing 34,000 miles around the Pacific aboard a light displacement 31-footer in which Garth could not stand or sit comfortably. After this voyage with his wife and an earlier one around the globe with his family as a teen, Garth felt he had done sufficient “research” to determine what kind of boat he might want to build for his next voyage. Using his skills as a professional naval architect and experience gleaned in a circumnavigation of the world in a 40-foot double ender that barely survived a shipwreck, Garth Wilcox designed his dream cruising boat. Together with his wife and sailing partner Wendy Hinman, he is building a boat for future adventures. Find out what they are building and why. Learn about the choices they’ve had to make and the process they’ve undertaken to build this boat. You may notice that many decisions and boat features of their new boat were inspired by their little voyager Velella, which will be featured in the festival, along with photos of her construction and adventures.

From casting a lead keel, steam bending frames and spiling planking, the Haven has it all. Emser will share the Haven’s lineage from the Herreshoff 12 1/2 footer to Joel White’s Haven 12 1/2 to John Brooks’s Some Sound and explain the differences in the 3 boats.

Making a Traditional Sliding Seat
My first woodworking teacher was John Kassay, an expert in Windsor and Shaker Furniture. Later, I volunteered extensively in the Boat Shop at the Dolphin Club in San Francisco, working on maintenance, restoration and construction of various lapstrake boats, many which were Whitehalls. The sliding rowing seats of those boats in the Club are sculpted ergonomic minimalist forms, much like the 18th and early 19th c. Windsor forms documented in John Kassay’s book. In this demo, I propose to demonstrate the sculpting of the seat and in detail, demonstrate the construction and assembly of the complete sliding seat structure.

Vessel Safety Checks: Who, What, Where, Why and How
Most boaters experience unexpected problems on the water. That's why the U.S. Coast Guard recommends that all recreational boaters, including personal watercraft and paddle sport users, take advantage of the free Vessel Safety Check program every year.

Every boat is required to have certain features and equipment to enhance the safety of using your boat. Do you have proper signaling devices? Are your fire extinguishers correct type and quantity? Does your boat meet all Federal and State requirements? These are just some items that will be discussed in this presentation to pass a voluntary Vessel Safety Check as well as additional suggested features and equipment.

Learn how a Vessel Safety Check is performed at your boat by a certified Vessel Examiner. Once your boat is awarded a current Vessel Safety Check decal, it will alert the Coast Guard and other law enforcement agencies that your boat was found in full compliance with required regulations.

Maritima Educare (MEA, aka Maritime Education Association) is an outgrowth of the Washington State nonprofit Coastal Heritage Alliance (CHA). MEA was founded 5 years ago in response to a recognized need to help Croatia revive its traditional maritime skills and knowledge.

This presentation will lead the audience through the steps taken in opening the Maritima Educare organization in Croatia. It will describe some the challenges of doing nonprofit work in a relatively poor country; but it will also highlight MEA’s successes in the field youth maritime education, and the program support it receives though the European Union.

Perhaps Festival visitors that are engaged in youth maritime programming, nonprofit management, or those that have a craving to visit Croatia might be most inclined to benefit from this presentation. In addition, MEA will be introducing future opportunities for individuals who may want to learn traditional wooden boat restoration in Croatia.

Help! I'm about to be Run Over by an Autonomous Boat
We hear about self-driving cars on the road, but the fact is we still don't have fully autonomous driver-less cars out there. On the water, however, uncrewed vessels are currently plying the oceans. Join Colin Angus, cofounder of Open Ocean Robotics (and owner of Angus Rowboats) as he discusses all aspects of autonomous boats - technology, safety, regulations and what it means to the average boater. Colin's company, based out of Victoria BC produces small solar-powered boats that can conduct research and surveillance for months at a time.

Understanding the waters beneath your boat: the health of Puget Sound and how you can help it recover!
Puget Sound is the largest estuary in the United States (by volume of water), and plays a vital role in our region’s ecology, economy, and quality of life. And as any sailor knows, Puget Sound is a beautiful place to live and recreate. Beneath the surface, though, Puget Sound is in trouble. Fortunately, we have a plan to help-- and boaters have an important role to play!

We'll begin by describing the status of Puget Sound as a waterbody, while answering questions like:
-How's Puget Sound doing (and how can we tell)?
-What are the key challenges in recovering Puget Sound back to health?
-What gives us hope?
Then, we'll talk about the region's official plan to recover Puget Sound-- and more specifically, the actions that boaters can take to help!

Tapes on the table for carbon fiber or glass.
A clean peel and stick method for taping filleted intersections and more. Allows the builder to wet out fabric on a table en masse to any width, carry the material into the boat, peel off plastic backers and apply the tape. Also aids in wetting out carbon fiber as it does not wet out clear like fiberglass. It's a good way to keep many hands busy during large taping sessions and can make for a fast, clean looking and lightweight job.

Movie: The Real Deal featuring Lin & Larry Pardey; introduction by Lin Pardey
Lin Pardey herself will introduce the film The Real Deal: featuring Lin and Larry Pardey. 

From the stormy seas of Cape Horn to the wilds of the Sahara Desert, few modern sailors have seen more adventures nor inspired more dreams than Larry Pardey. Sailing more than 200,000 miles and circumnavigating both east-about and west-about in engine-free boats he built himself, co-authoring 12 books and creating 5 videos, Larry has been called “the Enabler” and “the man who launched 50,000 dreams.” The Real Deal is an intimate profile created by Mike Anderson, video producer and boatbuilder and a longtime friend. The crux of the tale is the Pardey’s voyage to and around Cape Horn, the so-called “Mt. Everest of Sailing.” Along with at-sea footage, interviews with a variety of friends and associates, and archival film clips and photographs, the story is narrated via quotes from sailing writer Herb McCormick’s critically acclaimed biography of the couple, As Long as It’s Fun. Lin Pardey provided access to dozens of hours of previously unseen video footage shot by her and Larry during their voyages, including from their record setting, engine-free passage east from the Atlantic to the Pacific through the Straits of Le Maire and The Horn. “Mike has done an amazing job of gathering photographs from Larry’s earlier Newport Beach escapades” Lin stated. “And he used some great ones of his own, taken when we were building Taleisin in Bull Canyon, our hideaway in the hills behind Lake Elsinore, California. But best of all, Mike has gathered video and interviews from some of the people Larry encouraged and helped along the path to their dreams. This doco has definitely caught the sometimes wild, always adventuresome, warm spirit of the man who shared his life with me.”

Sumartin Shipyard: a day in the life
This traditional Croatian shipyard has been in existence for over 100 years. For several of those years it was a wood boat building school operated by the Yugoslav government. Several Croatian American shipbuilders were trained at this facility; many of which brought their knowledge and stills to Tacoma and Gig Harbor where successful ship building operations were developed.

Today, the Sumartin Shipyard is one of the very few traditional boatyards in operation. Their customers are fisherman and tourism boat operators; all of which own large wooden work boats (25 to 35 meters) that require both annual maintenance and major refits.

The presentation would involve showing both still photos and video clips, with in-depth interpretation provided by Mike Vlahovich. Time would be allowed for comments, dialogue and questions between the presenter and the audience. This presentation would also include some storytelling based on Mike’s lifetime experiences as a shipwright in the US and in Croatia.

Understanding the Puget Sound Vessel Sewage No Discharge Zone
The Puget Sound Vessel Sewage No Discharge Zone (NDZ) rule came into effective over 4 years ago, on May 10, 2018. It means that vessel sewage cannot be discharged in the NDZ designated area, which includes Washington marine waters north to the Canadian border and west to the New Dungeness Lighthouse, including Lake Union and Lake Washington and all the connecting waters. This talk will cover why the NDZ is important, what we've found out about vessel sewage management since the rule came into effect, and answer some FAQs about the rule and how to comply.

Becoming Coastal - 25 years of adventure in self-built small boats
The size of the adventure is not dependent on the size of the boat and my presentation will be a demonstration of that. It will feature stories, images and maps from journeys that I describe in a book I published just before the pandemic hit. The book is called “Becoming Coastal”, sub-titled “25 years of exploration and discovery of the British Columbia coast by paddle, oar and sail”. The journeys cover everything from short getaways to multi-week expeditions, all in wooden boats I built. I’ll show how I built 5 different boats over the years, beginning with a solo kayak, and culminating in a sail and oar boat of my own design, which I rowed and sailed the length of the Inside Passage. I’ll speak of the joys and the adversities of self-propelled travel and adventure. I’ll cover wildlife, weather and nature, and some of the interesting people that I’ve met on the coast of British Columbia. I’ll give a personal perspective on acquiring the necessary physical and mental skills for solo traveling. I’ll tell the story of how I discovered for myself the coast's geography, its ecology, its people and my own growing capabilities. Above all, I’ll encourage everyone to get out and experience the coast for themselves.

Wind, Sand and Sea- A life of Sailing
It was a whim, a thought spoken out loud, one that was definitely off the wall for a 20 year old bookworm of a girl who was raised on the edge of the desert. “I think I’d like to learn to sail,” I said one day as I slaved away at another pile of office paperwork. Yes, I was young, probably foolish, but two weeks later I ran away with Larry, a professional yacht skipper who was building his own cruising boat. I still can’t believe I did it. But 58 years later and with more than 220,000 miles of voyaging under my belt, I am still doing it, messing about in boats, preparing to cross another ocean. Join me for a view into the life that has kept me constantly enthralled, led me to more than 70 different countries and included sailing dozens of different boats. I’ll share some of the highlights of circumnavigating both east about the world, then west about the world on two different engine-free wooden boats Larry and I built. I’ll talk about the excitement of doubling Cape Horn against the wind and bring you up to date with the joys and tribulations of learning to sail on a "modern" cruising yacht complete with an engine.

Walden-Not A Boat, A Time Machine.
Walden, a 16' traditional lapstrake cutter, is a replica of what I believe was the smallest ship's boat carried by the USS Massachusetts in April of 1850, when the Massachusetts became the first American, and the first propeller driven, steamship on the waters of the Salish Sea. Through Walden I will tell the story of the Massachusetts and her crew. Why should people today care? Ultimately it was American steamers that influenced the Salish Sea the most, and the screw propeller proved to be the most effective way of transmitting the power of an engine to the water...look at Point Hudson, Boat Haven, Port Townsend Bay or Admiralty Inlet...almost all of the vessels you see have screw propellers today. Steamboats facilitated travel and commerce, encouraging settlement of non-indigenous peoples, but they also aided in the destruction of the environment and the way of life of Native Americans. Although my project focuses on the Massachusetts, Walden can play many roles and is not merely a boat...she is a time machine. She can slip back to the 1790s and accompany Vancouver, she could have been carried in 1841 by the US Exploring Expedition under Charles Wilkes, she could have been used by other 19th Century American ships or ships in the service of the Hudson's Bay Company, she could have been tied up in a creek to help people get around the Sound, and she is also a great boat in the present. I would like to make folks who attend the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival aware of this incredible and influential history that few people know about today.

Icon of Croatian Boat Building and Fishing: The FV Shenandoah
The FV Shenandoah is one boat with three lives: tender, seiner, and now, teacher. Centerpiece of the Harbor History Museum's Maritime Gallery, the Shenandoah was built in Gig Harbor, Washington, by Croatian-born boat builders and fished by two Croatian families for 73 years. This pedigree made her ideal for adding to the museum's collection but a challenge to restore for safe exhibition.
