If you’re interested in learning the age-old art of reefing and corking, Saturday’s your chance.
Three professional shipwrights will be teaching volunteers reefing and corking (or “caulking,” as it’s pronounced on the East Coast) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8 aboard the 1889 tugboat Arthur Foss. The ship is docked at Seattle’s Lake Union Park.
Instructors Ryan and Trevor Farsovitch of Eagle Rock Boat Repair and Brian Johnson of Ocean Bay Marine each have decades of experience working as commercial shipwrights on vessels in the Washington and Alaska fishing fleets.
