Sistering Frames with Old Fashioned Ingenuity

Ben Spivak of Colorado and Kate Tansky are pictured here working on the Flying Jib, owned by Sara Beck of Topsfield, here at Burnham Boatbuilding. Ben and Kate are a great team and they have been very diligently sistering frames in the Flying Jib. Ben and Kate are driving these new ribs down through the covering board all the way to the keel. It is a great way of adding new life to an old boat...and hopefully giving the Flying Jib many more seasons (or at least a few!) and we are very impressed by the hard work and dedication of Ben and Kate. We also love their banana bread!
