2020 In Review

Looking back on 2020, it seemed to me I did more planning, fretting, and "getting ready to get ready" than I did any doing. But that isn't necessarily true. Despite, or perhaps because of,  the extraordinary circumstances of 2020, we accomplished a good bit on Gardens of Fenwick. In roughly chronologic order here's what we got done:

Name Boards 

New Hinged Tiller

Hand-painted Registration Numbers

New Running Rigging

New Splicing Skills: Soft Shackles and Continuous Loops

Main Mast Lever Lift (Concept drawing. Seems I don't have an as-built-and-installed photos)

Boat Stands

Lazy Jacks

Mizzen Mast Slot & Plug

SUP Paddles

Two-Piece Kayak Paddle

Outboard Seats

"Front Row" Viewing Platform (at the west side of our place) and Two (newly built) Adirondack Chairs

Les Cheneaux Islands Get Away

Stove Box

Cooking & Baking Experimenting: Taking inspiration from the Great British Baking Show, we tried new recipes for Breads and Clangers. From exploring the Internet, we've begun playing with Curries. And in a moment of weakness, I decided to bake Fruitcake, which turned out nicely.

We are looking forward to 2021! 


  1. Good to see what you've accomplished there on "Gardens". All the very best to you and yours for 2021 Bob.

    1. Thank you John. Wishing you the best for 2021 as well.

  2. Brilliant stuff Bob. Sadly Arwen has hardly been out. As soon as I get a trip sorted we get locked down. Just had to cancel another trip this weekend due to raised tier level. Love your craftsmanship by the way. Happy new year

  3. Good write up on bunch of projects. Great to see. We just keep going forward with our vessels. Keep posting Bob.
    Bon Anja Nobo!
