Field Trip to Harken – Pewaukee, WI

Since it was blowing 30kts by lunch time we had the afternoon off.

Veteran DN sailor Steve Orlebeke invited the fleet to see where he works, which happens to be the Harken plant in Pewaukee.

So. Freaking. Cool. Giant facility, clean as a whistle, some very cool machinery…. Fascinating to see where our favorite blocks come from and how they go together. Also wild to see some of the big stuff they are working on-

Hard to do it justice but maybe the pics will help-

Capped the day with dinner at a steak joint where Al Capone and other Chicago gangsters used to hang out when the heat was on….

Stay tuned! T
