PORT TOWNSEND — Steve Shillington, right, from Loveland, Colo., just happened to visit Port Townsend on Wednesday to find the Point Hudson campus being transformed for the Wooden Boat Festival.

Shillington said he loves wooden boats and will be back for the festivities this weekend after a trip to Seattle.

Wooden Boat Foundation volunteer Tom Robb explained the details of a long-term project at the shop — the complete restoration of the 1938 Ben Seaborn-designed SV Juna, begun in 2013.
