A great scene
We had a great day yesterday with Barry O'Brien and Jeff Lane at the launch of the new Gundalow in Portsmouth, N.H. called "Piscataqua" built by shipwright Paul Rollins of York, Maine.  Some of you may remember in 2007 and 2008 when Harold was involved with the Gundalow Company and worked on the preliminary designs for this vessel. Although Harold moved on to other projects, we think that Paul Rollins, Nate Piper, Molly Bolster and the folks in Portsmouth and at the Gundalow company have a lot to be proud of and they did a beautiful job building the new vessel. We think the boat is well suited to its mission and we are looking forward to seeing them up and down the Piscataqua River next spring and hope to visit them in the Ardelle. Thanks Barry O'Brien for the photos!
