The Parks Family Ace
We always love to see old pictures of Sande Aces. Here's Bob Parks' only picture of his family's single-cockpit Ace which they used at their place in Nelson's Cove of Bald Point on Hood Canal.

2014 Sande Ace Rendezvous
It is hard to believe that the 10th annual Sande Ace Rendezvous happened on Hood Canal in August. We had outgrown Alderbrook Resort so we went back to lunch at the Waali place after an early launch at Twanoh State Park. We also exceeded the patience of the park rangers so next year we'll have to let them know we are coming.

How Many Aces Are Running About Today?
Here are pictures of 13 Aces and two open cedar strip Sande boats taken 2005-2013, mostly at the Rendezvous. There are some more cedar strip boats out there and a few more Sande Aces perhaps along with several new Aces under construction. For another look at numbers, check the Sande Ace Registry.
Thanks to the Sande Ace fans who keep this meter rolling.
