Photos from MA-XIV - 2016
The Port Townsend Route
by Jim Ferguson

XIV is almost a clone of XII. Some went the full route from Olympia to Port Townsend and back and some went the shorter trip joining and departing at Kingston.

Long Trippers departing Olympia
Old Number Two is looking better. Rick stripped the hull down to bare fiberglass, made proper repairs, and applied new gel coat. A job I would never have started.

Not sure of this photo. The sequence indicates it is on my camera but that is not possible. I think someone sent me this and the numbers are a coincidence:

I think we made one long run from Gig Harbor to Olympia and hauled out.
