Bluenose … Part 3

Bluenose / The Original Houghton Weavers

Bluenose / Part 3

Time to swab the decks.

A mop in both hands!

Hosing ‘er down.

I might have done more talking than swabbing.

Polishing the bell is an special assignment. 

And a joyful one.

Those portholes were tarnished!

Repairing a turnbuckle.

Learning some knots.

Charting course.

Modern navigation.

On course – Mahone Bay

A turn at the helm!
A dream come true!

Steady as she goes.

Bringing her in.

Mahone Bay.

Ready anchor!


Time for lunch.

Coming Up!: Set Sails!!

  1. This was another great post on Bluenose 2. The weather on the boat looks very nice. I really like all the great pictures on this post. I hope you had a great time in Ontario and Niagara Falls? I can wait to see next post on Blue Nose 2 .

    1. Wellll … we were supposed to be part of the Crew. And since this was the first time they had ever done this ‘Crew for a Day’ they were trying out a few things. (Don’t think those decks really needed swabbing.) Later on we did get in some real sailing.
