Viking ship bound for Boston

Published April 12, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Master boatbuilder Jay Smith (left) and boat owner Stuart Boyd presided over the lift of the 32-foot S/V Polaris today at Skyline Marina. The “Viking ship” launched at Bowman Bay in November 2017 will be wrapped for shipment to its new home in Boston about 10 days from now. Boyd is a resident of Boston, looking forward to dropping the unique vessel into the storied waters of the Northeast.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
