Birthday gift from my 9 year old granddaughter

Post by Chinook » Wed Sep 16, 2020 11:13 am

I thought I'd share a picture of the birthday present my 9 year old granddaughter give me this year. As you can see, she's quite the budding artist. She worked off a photograph of our boat from one of our trips. She picked enough detail for me to even guess which trip. The red courtesy flag and the blue wind scoop over the fore hatch were the give aways. We bought that scoop for our Sea of Cortez cruise, and the red flag is the Mexican courtesy flag. Details noticed include the Magma barbque, bimini, rudders, outboard (tilted up), and sail covers on both the main and furled jib. Part I love best is her phonetic spelling of the boat name: Shanook, which translates to Chinook if you understand 9 year old spelling. And, of course, it's done in water colors.
