A few weeks ago at Point Hudson, during a cold and snowy day, I happened to catch this group of young mariners from the Port Townsend school district about to push off from the dock in a longboat for a turn around the bay. This group of youth is known as the Puget Sound Explorers, Bravo Team. In addtion to learning maritime skills and teamwork they are responsible for the yearly haul-out and maintenance of the longboat, Bear.
The Bear is one of several boats owned by the Wooden Boat Foundation which provides many recreational and educational programs in the area for youth and adults.
