Shop Christmas Gatherings

Shop Christmas Gathering 2011

Saturday morning, December 17th (9-12) 

It was that time of the year again, all the local were invited to join us on Saturday morning, December 17th for our annual Shop Christmas Gathering. We promised to clean up the shop pretty good, throw up some tinsel and lights on the overhead hoist, actually wash the floors and decorate our shop Christmas tree. Last year Barbara Naramore delivered a huge shrimp platter from the WolfeCatch. Brian Small brought his Christmas ham and the food and friends just kept coming for all the fun with good friends, good food, lots of banter and vintage videos. Ladies were especially welcomed, and all food donations were cherished and met with standing ovations !!!

Enjoy all the smiling faces in our photo archive of Christmas Gatherings:

On a personal note, George Johnson was a good friend and mentor to us, we all miss him dearly. But his spirit and passion for our beautiful vintage wooden boats lives on, and we are sure that George was looking down upon us, and smiling.
