Sixth Frame Is Up and Looks Good

Sixth frame with bulkhead being put in place

Aaron Snyder and Harold get ready to get the sixth frame, with bulkhead, into place.
Yesterday was a busy day at the yard as the sixth frame went up complete with bulkhead. Now when you stand on the frames you get the sense of the watertight compartment. Harold did a nice job with the bulkhead and although a necessary component to a Coast Guard certified vessel, we do miss seeing the whole way through the vessel from stem to stern. But, it is all a part of complying with regulations and the bulkhead does look good.

Harold had help yesterday from a crew of volunteers including Aaron Snyder who stopped by and spent the day working. He was a huge help and knows his stuff having built two schooners with Harold in the past.

Harold was able to drill holes while Aaron Snyder and the gang were building another frame

The Yard Horse was a huge help lifting this extra heavy frame with bulkhead
