The Hyas yiem was a fine craft and it got me from Olympia to Bellingham in style. I’m not exactly sure what comes next for her but right now she’s in storage, hanging out of the weather, just waiting. The thing is, that’s a heavy boat and difficult to move, at least when it’s out of the water. I like the way that, because of its construction, it gets people thinking about single-use plastic and conversations were started simply because of the way it was built… I’d like to keep those conversations going.
I had some bottles left after making the boat and I’ve decided to use them to make a standup paddleboard. I’m hoping to get just as many good conversations but with something I can carry around a little more easily. It’s about half done… looking to get it out on the water next week.
