We are fully into our spring work. Painting anything that is still.
I have just returned from holidays to find the shop buzzing with activity. Several haul-outs and many projects crossed off the list.
In the shop now is a lovely boat re-built at the Cannon & Benjamen yard. They did a beautiful job to this little Alden knockabout. W are giving it the yearly service and a new paint job. Because this boat was shipped across the country we were looking for signs of damage due to being on the trailer. Good craftsmanship proves well as we could find nothing wrong with her. She is a nice addition to our collection of boats.
Merva is now sitting in the water in front of the shop. All the electrical and motor work is done. We are working on the little details of the interior. Our upholstery should be ready soon. I'm looking forward to showing her off at the shows this summer and fall.
Balandra is coming in to her final push. We will be launching her on June 14 2009. This marking er 64th anniversary of her original launch. Shendra ( owner ) is here this week to give a hand. She arrived on time and as usual with cookies for all and a great deal of enthusiasm. I'm looking forward to the progress this week.
