Monk’s Finest

Old Man IV - photo by Rick EtsallThe 9th Annual Pacific Northwest rendezvous for the Monk 36 Trawlers Association is coming August 26 – 28, and fans of the legendary designer Ed Monk should be thrilled. The rendezvous at Deer Harbor Marina on Orcas Island in the fabled San Juans will bring in Monk-designed trawlers from all around and open with a pizza party on the dock. August 27 will feature tours of all the boats so owners can share their improvements and refinements. A bus tour is available for those who want to see Orcas Island, and the evening will feature a catered event (to be determined).

The rendezvous promises to be a good time for fans of Ed Monk’s boats and is well worth checking out if you’re in the area at the right time. August 28 has a potluck and members are encouraged to bring meals to share. It’s wise to make marina reservations early, so call Deer Harbor Marina at 360-376-3037.
