The Shields fleet 3 boatyard bash is a yearly event that-in theory-has all the crews of the different boats coming together to work on the boats and share tools and knowloedge. In reality a few boats show up, get about 20 minutes of work done, all the while eating grilled foods and doing some day-drinking.
2011 was no exception, and 88's team embodied the spirit of the event: we did a little work, grabbed some Churros, and mostly stood around drinking and watching the river. Photos are below, but we did tackle some actual projects:
-Team Twing (Niki and Rick) fixed the port twing bracket (note drink holders in use)
-Team Halyard (Katie and Jacob) replaced our new spin halyard with our old one
-Team Underdeck Storage Soluations (Katie, appearing like a raccoon caught in camera flash)
-Blue Team (Doug) did something involving padeyes
-Team Breakfast (Andy) stood around and ate sausage and was mocked for this
Here are some other photos
