Happy New Year from Burnham Boatbuilding

Zach Teal, 15, has poured his time, energy and talent into this project.
It is backbreaking work to carry frames!

Trunnels are a key part of this schooner.

Great shot and it does take a lot of \hands to frame.

These frames are even heavier than they look.
Harold needed chains to keep the frame up at times - they are now bolted in with bronze rods

Chuckie with an old looking Harold. This is one of Dan's favorite photos!

Dan must have gotten into some of the mud to get this shot

Harold is adding ribands after the frames go up.

A patchwork of shapes and colors.

A great fall shot from the town dock

Some framing went on well after sunset

There have been so many great photos taken this year with Dan Tobyne spending so many long hours shooting this project. We have also had contributing photos by Perry Ardelle Burnham and many others but truly, thank you, Dan, for so many great, great photos...half of them have yet to be posted so I have selected some that have not appeared and other favorites. It has been a great experience so far wathcing this schooner get built and so many people have helped. It really is an inspiring be continued...into 2011! Happy New Year! ... and thanks! HAB

Andy Spinney, center, and the start of something great!

Thanks, Perry Ardelle, too, for all your great photos!

With five frames raised, the crew needed to straighten them out

The lofting floor will not be needed as much now
