Launching of Woodwind III

Captain's Blog1 Comment

I know many of you have have been asking about the possibility of a third vessel.  Well, after much head scratching and fund raising efforts, we finally are announcing today that Woodwind III has been launched.  We will now share these photos of our new venture.  Sam was chosen as captain, Mike W as 1st Mate.

Sam discusses final plans for maiden voyage. Mike listens intently (as well he should).

The vessel has been inspected and the two stalwart sailors plan to shove off.

Shoving off!

You will notice subtle but significant differences between the older sisters and the new vessel, such as  lower free-board, a new radical shape and an exceedingly flat bottom (photos not yet available of bottom).

Unlike Woodwind and Woodwind II, Woodwind III is completely green. Her engine being placed in position as Sam ducks to avoid the powerful thrust of her engine. There is no carbon footprint with this sophisticated power-plant.

About Captain Ken

How do you answer the question, What do I want to do when I grow up? For me, it was, ask the question what do I love to do that I can share with others and make it a career? I taught instrumental music to elementary students for 25 years. When that was no longer an option due to budget cuts, I asked the question again? This time the answer was, with the help of my family, Schooner Woodwind.
