The Varnished Truth w/e Dec 11 10

This was a week of steady progress in the boatshop.

Lightning restoration, Chris has two more deck braces to go and George has all the seat support brackets ready for brass bolts and is starting on the repair of the cedar seat for the port side.

Shepherd detailing, the port bottom is scraped back to the dolley , now on the the stbd side...

Skiff projects, the blue skiff in the "store" has sold and will be headed off to be under a tree for christmas! Jim has finished the varnishing on the next skiff so it needs to sit for a week or so before the painting begins. So this week it will be on to the last skiff for varnishing it's bright bits.

Skiff Kits, we have the material for 3 more sets of transoms etc and The Canoe Shop in town under Ron Frenettes' guidance will help us plane and joint the parts - thanks Ron!

St. John River Cruise 2011, if we are to participate in this event this year the 27' Shepherd has to be in the water in Jacksonville Fla by March 19. It really needs to be in the water in Fla at least a week earlier than that. If you wish to be on this team let us know soon as the booking date is early in the new year. Grant, John and I took the Hunter down to this event 2 years ago and it was a total blast (see pics from that trip)
