Thank you Volunteers!!

By Capt. Korie

My oh my. What an amazing work list we
all accomplished this past weekend. Thank you everyone for coming from all over, pitching in wherever you could, bringing us rags and supplies and helping us log an amazing amount of volunteer hours. Everything you did this weekend gets us one step closer to our splash date (the week of April 5th). There is still a lot to be done before that, but this weekend helped tremendously.

PLEA FOR MORE HELP And, just a reminder, we really need more help throughout the work week. Our dedicated live aboard volunteers are slowly trickling out to other spring jobs just when we need hands the most. So, any time you can spare during the week, we could really use you. Before we splash we still need to seam and paint all the new planks, paint the bottom, rig all the lower spars, remove the boat cover. Hopefully, we can also get the new focsle bunks painted and more varnish on our deck brightwork as well before we start to focus on rigging and getting the ship ready for the season start on April 25th. Please contact me if you are able to join us. There will always be a bunk and meals waiting for you aboard. Thanks in advance!
