Launching a dream

It took a life-threatening stroke for Jim Baker, 64, of Edina, to fulfill his dream of building a wooden boat. With the encouragement of his family, and the help of his caregiver Greg Schaffner, he built the small-kit boat. Baker and Schaffner recently launched the boat in Lake Harriet on its maiden voyage. More than 30 friends and family were there to witness the launch.
