June 27, 2007 – Three Generations Working Together on a Boat


While we were in Tenakee Springs I saw this unusual sight. A three-generation boat.

And they all had a job and were ready to work as the boat was being brought into the dock.

I was particularly taken with nine year old Christine. Here she is in action, getting ready to rig the bow line.

She is getting ready to coil it up so she can do a neat throw.

Look at that tongue. She's concentrating hard.

OK, that's one half of the coil job completed. Then she did a second looped coil so she would be ready to throw just half the weight of that big line.

She gets herself into position and doesn't let herself get distracted by the activity around her.

Now comes the throw.

She knows she's nailing it.

He's got it! A nice, small, satisfied smile. Good work, Christine.

Cassie and Melissa, I was really thinking about you two while I was taking these pictures of her.
Grandma and Grandpa were definitely in on the action too.

The boat (M/V Ambience) is in transit from Seattle to Whittier AK (where the owners live) so they will be crossing the Gulf of Alaska during this trip. It's a good thing there is such a good crew onboard.
