That's my mom, my dad and my sister at what looks like Bellevue pond several years ago. Basically the story is that a bunch of guys in my club (NWRCSM) wanted to built scratch but didn't have the means. So my dad and I cut out some "kit" pieces and gave them at at meetings. Apparently they've really taken off since I've been out of the hobby
In fact in the first few pictures you see the one that is black hulled, white house with twin stacks? I built that and sold it it Tom Stevens of NWRCSM who painted it and repowered it. The actually ORIGINAL boat itself is in my dad's storage unit collecting dust in Seattle, it's based off a tug he had back in the 60's or 70's named the Ellrington.
