Third Friday Speaker at CWB: Rob Smith & Thain Boatworks
Join us for a talk and slideshow presented by Thain Boatworks. Rob Smith will be launching his first plywood ferry boat built for Lake Victoria in Uganda. The launch will happen on Friday, and his team will be on hand to discuss the process and to update us on the launch. We may even hear from Rob himself, who will be in Uganda for the launch.
7pm, Friday, February 18th
CWB Boathouse, South Lake Union
Free, refreshments provided, donations accepted
One year ago, the Thain Boatworks team gave a presentation on the process of designing, pre-constructing, dissecting, and shipping the ferry to Uganda. Lake Victoria has had no functioning ferry services in many years, and Rob’s dream is to help boost commerce and provide high-speed transportation across the lake, which takes days to travel around, but potentially hours to cross by ferry.
