Saturday the epoxy was not quite dry after yesteday's work so the crew had a lot of different tasks to work on. We took time out after lunch to all hop on the schooner Maine for one last ride down river before she is - well - put down. The Maine will just be an historic relic after we remove cabin tops and other items from her over the next few days. It was great to have one more sail on this great boat. We have had some fun on her! Perry Ardelle, Harold's daughter, sent us some photos from just a few days ago which are great. Thanks, Perry!
