Spring in the Boatyard

Harold has been on the tractor, at the sawmill, under boats and just about everywhere around the yard these past few spring days.

Nice job, Bruce!
 There is a lot going on at the boatyard these past days with the good weather bringing everyone out and lots of other folks in the industry coming by to talk about...well, wood, mostly, and Harold has had the sawmill going all week. Trees keep arriving...cherry, pine, oak, and more, and Harold keeps cutting. Meanwhile, Bruce Slifer has finished the first of three spars that will replace the existing fore and gaff booms on the schooner Adventure. Bill Holmes helped out and the first one looks great.
