A Beal Island Lobster Boat Comes to the Yard

Chad Gadbois brought in his Beal Island lobster boat on Saturday

We like how it looks against the barn!

The yard on a cold December day.

A nice shot of Chad's lobster boat - a work in progess!

Chad Gadbois' lobster boat arrived on Saturday and we are giving her a good look over before we start working on her more. In the words of famed Maine boatbuilder Ralph Stanley "She is worse than we hoped but not so much worse than we expected." Chad is from Beverly by way of Maine where his family comes from. We know that he can do just about anything and has been a huge help to us during the building of the Ardelle. We look forward to seeing what he does with this old girl! He dreams of cruising and fishing in her with his kids and something about this boat and Chad reminds Harold of his old Friendship Sloop Chrissy.
