The newest member of Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op, Zeke McFadin, built a sailing vessel when he was 20 years old. He named the boat “Ness”. It took him six years to build the steel hull, a Tahitiana Ketch. In 2000, when the boat was completed, Zeke sailed Ness to Mexico and Hawaii. A few years later, on his wedding day, he sold the boat. Now, years later, Zeke discovered that Ness was for sale and bought it back last month. Zeke plans to take care of some maintenance, paint and varnish. His family is looking forward to sailing in the San Juan Islands and the Gulf Islands this year.
