Sawdust Splashes in Picture Perfect Time

Eric Borden and his whole family were on hand to watch the yawl "Sawdust" hit the water around 6 p.m. on Saturday evening this past weekend. It was a beautiful sight to see and their late father Carroll N. Borden, who originally built but never actually sailed on the boat, would have been very proud. It was a lovely and emotional moment for the family when Eric's sister christened the boat with champagne and then off Sawdust went down the rails. The family, along with Harold, took the boat for a little river cruise as the sunset. They will have some absolutely awesome sailing days ahead. Congratulations!


  1. congratulations!! i had a chance to look sawdust over last fall when i visited. happy sailing!

  2. I hope that she just splashed it. I cannot imagine smacking such a beautify boat with a thick, heavy bottle. If she stays around Gloucester, I'll have to take some shots.
