Christmas Has Come to the Boatyard

Heh, Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus, er, Harold drives a trunnel

Santa drills a long hole (to the north pole?)

Last week, the crew moved the mighty heavy bulkhead frame

Chuck Redman putting together the LAST aft frame. Yeah!

Harold and the crew have every frame up aft and just four more to go forward to complete it. Traditionally, when the frames are finished, a small Christmas tree will be on the bow so that should add to the festive feeling around here. With the frames almost finished, Harold is looking forward to getting the steam box out and will start the planking process – hopefully – before Christmas which feels good. There is still a lot of work to do but thanks particularly to a devoted crew we are making headway!  Thank you Dan Tobyne for the fantastic photos. Also, we are selling trunnel tickets as a kind of momento or donation and of course as an opportunity to sail next summer. To find out more you can go to our website.
