Garry’s Project


Sharon Lee

You all know how Garry likes to keep busy, so I thought I would share a little of one of his many winter projects.  A few months ago he decided to start restoring his very first boat, the Sharon Lee – a 1976 24′ Bell Boy.  This boat has made many a successful crossing of the Westport Bar searching for the elusive salmon and has had many an adventure in the San Juans, the Gulf Islands and Desolation Sound.

The restoration project is turning out to be a bit more than anticipated but he seems to be enjoying it.   After completely gutting the boat, he is now in the process of starting to put things back together.   Thanks to our many boating friends there is an abundance of help and advice.

As you can see by the two pictures, there is a bit of work to do.  The goal is to have the boat done by this summer so some of the kids and/or friends are able to tow it to Canada and do some fishing with us while we are up north.

While doing this post I’ve been trying to figure out what I have been doing wrong in prior posts when adding pictures.   It’s a bit more complicated than I first thought but I might have it figured out now.

Hey!  Maybe I will add a 3rd picture just to test myself.
