Sea Scouts Launch Fafnir

The 6-week Sea Scouts Wooden Boat Bootcamp culminated with the christening of Fafnir, a 19 ft. banks dory. The program gave the scouts of Ship Dragon (SSS 584) the opportunity to learn more about traditional boat building techniques under the able direction of Larry Magee and George Spragg along with assistance from fellow JGTSCA members.

On Friday, August 29, 2008, Sea Scouts and their families along with JGTSCA members gathered to celebrate the launching of the completed dory.
