PORT TOWNSEND –– After losing his job, Josh Turner of Sequim took to the Internet site Craigslist to try and use his newfound free time to fulfill his lifelong dream: building a boat.

Turner got a quick response from a stranger in Canada, and a year later his yellow-and-purple Sequim High-themed sailing catamaran was docked beside vintage boats at the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend last weekend.

“It’s kind of unreal to actually be here on the boat now,” Turner said.

Two weeks ago, Turner’s creation won the prize for Most Interesting Boat in the Vancouver Wooden Boat Show.
