The Work Party


Several “old guys” came together one sunny November Sunday to help raise the walls and roof of a new build in Port Townsend.  Jeff Hammond has been building mostly by himself and needed extra muscle for this.

Almost everyone helping first met Jeff in their youth, as students at the N.W. School of Wooden Boatbuilding, where Jeff was the lead instructor for 30 plus years.  This deep relationship and loyalty to a friend in need is a chief reason Jeff and Marilyn are moving back to Jefferson County.

Welcome home, Jeff & Marilyn!
