Center for Wooden Boats

Another good day for sketching with good company. I've always loved tugboats. They seem more like a toy than a workhorse to me. I looked up Foss and they have a nice history. "Founded in 1889, the Foss story is a quintessential example of the American Dream: Thea Foss, a young Norwegian immigrant and her husband, Andrew, turned one rowboat into what eventually became a world class fleet of tugboats." www.foss.com/about_history.html
