Blessing a boat

Elder Williams was out working in the yard one morning around 6:30 and a man we knew from another island came in the yard and asked him to give his new cargo boat a blessing.    It was going to be its first voyage from santo to Malekula carrying passengers and whatever people want sent...
So we went down to one of the wharfs and found Brother Patrick Ishmael (the one with the big smile) and his new boat, the Kiangah!     All the crew was very respectful and shook our hands after.
