Historic Vessel Vega was in a prime position during the show and according to the organizers we attracted more visitors than any other display.
This is Vega on the first day of the show just before the doors opened.
We had spent 6 weeks both in the boat yard and in the water getting Vega ready for the show. She gleamed and we were proud of the old girl.
One of my favorite signs. Made from a old plank from Vega. Everyone was welcome and hundreds of people came to see a real traditional boat that is still working for her living.
Children love Vega. More than one was heard to exclaim, "look it's pirates of the Caribbean"amazing how fast children figure us out. &:o})
A constant stream of visitors came every day.
Vega was a main attraction.
The best part was seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Here you have a collection of salty old Vegabonds.
At the end of the first full day we were barely able to talk, too tired to walk, and unable to afford Singapore restaurant prices the thought of cooking brought on nothing more energetic than sheepish grins. Then out of the blue came an angel loaded with pizza, fried chicken, and a host of other goodies. It was foredeck picnic time. We wont talk about the one who fell asleep with a half eaten chicken leg in hand.
