Annual Event Brings Small Boat Enthusiasts Together

Mark your calendars for May 20, 2017 to attend the 4th annual Pull and Be Damned Messabout at Seafarer's Park, Anacortes (10:00 am to 4:00 pm). This event is an opportunity for small boat enthusiasts to gather, share and have fun on the water. Bring your own boat if you have one. Come see all sorts of small craft and meet their owners. Vessels attending will include gigs, whitehalls, kayaks, skin-on-frame boats, various sailing craft and more! Anacortes Small Boat Center (ASBC), Port of Anacortes, The Old Anacortes Rowing and Sailing Society (OARSS), Hole in the Wall Paddling Club, Traditional Small Craft Association and Fiberglass Supply and others sponsor this event. 

There will be a potluck lunch at 12:30 in the Seafarer’s building. Barbecues will be provided for grilling. Activities include demonstrations, fun and games. There is no cost for this event. Come enjoy the Anacortes waterfront.

"Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."   ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
