'There will be a crew of US boatbuilders and students in Franklin to build a ‘Haven 12 1/2’ beginning second week of December for 8 weeks prior to the next Wooden Boat Festival.  They are looking for help with accommodation in Franklin for this crew... this is an opportunity for local people to make a few dollars without the agency fees if they have a house or apartment they would like to make available.  We are a public, free event supporting the wooden boat community and hope that a similar spirit might spur a few offers.  These are delightful, talented and enthusiastic people who made us very welcome in Port Townsend.  We’d like to show them some Tasmanian hospitality while they are with us. Anyone who can help is welcome to send  an email to Paul ( to open the conversation.'
