This is the first dock party of the new year. Sun came out and so did we.
|Here on Bainbridge there are many communities. One of the best is our boaters, I am one. We do tend to come out of the wood work at the first signs of spring.|
|People you haven't seen all winter are down on the docks preparing their boats for a new season. Always a good excuse for a gathering.||Dock parties are also a good way to meet other boaters from around the harbor. Many people know you by your boat name before they know you.|
|An interesting thing about people and boats. Boats seem to be a common denominator that will bring people together. Race, creed, money, for the average boater are not the issues .||It is where you've been, where you are going, how you rigged this and fixed that. Travelers tails and sea stories are still alive and well here on Bainbridge|
|We still have a few wood boats mixed in with the glass and steel. We have livaboards, high-end yachtes, and funky old chinese junks. This makes for a more interesting place. -- Dave Henry||
This is who we are.
