The Artful Sailor’s Floating Store and boat TASWENS will crooze the Pocket Yacht Palooza, in South Puget Sound, WA.
Salty Sue and Emiliano Marino, of Sailmaker’s Apprentice fame, will be at the Lake Union Wooden Boat Festival (10:00 a.m.-6:00 pm Saturday & Sunday) bringing their unique and entertaining blend of salty songs, hands-on marlinespike demos and all ’round chicanery.

Sharing and passing on traditional handsewing skills using natural and recycled materials is The Artful Sailor’s mission. Harken to the bosun’s whistle and the smell of pine tar and you will find a living museum of maritime trade history.
