Alaskan waters. The Homer Spit is abuzz Saturday 10am to 6pm and
Sunday 10am to 4pm with boat exhibits, demonstrations, kids' boat
building and the Tolman Skiff rendezvous. The Pedersen Classic
Rowboat Races start midday Sunday, with child and adult categories.
Check the Boat Festival and Shorebird Festival schedules for trips
to Gull Island aboard the classic wooden M/V Danny J.

Contact Dave at (907) 235-2986 for more information.

I don't know who Dave is, somebody forwarded this info to me.  There will be quite a few Tolman skiffs down there, as well as folks that are building them.  Lots of other wooden boats as well, kayaks, dinghies, etc.
