Lake Union Wooden Boat Festival

  • The Center for Wooden Boats 1010 Valley Street Seattle, WA 98109 (map)

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.

Specializing in the rigging, working and maintenance of traditional sailing craft, Salty Sue and Marino will display and demonstrate their wares: guidance, goods, tools and kits for the self-reliant sailor.

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.
