Fall 2013 part one

Well there has been progress this fall, here are a few pics of the action...

Jim preparing the "Red" skiff

Chris lays it on the Lightning
boom and rudder parts

Mike removes the cowl from Gas-Hopper
in preparation for stripping the paint

 K&C volunteers head to Woodwind Yachts for ACBS Fall Workshop....

Our crew consisted of MB, Grant, Jim, Chris & Scott. This was an amazing outing for us as it covered some of the tricky jobs we see coming up (and that we have been putting off).
Ken Lavallette of Woodwind hands
off a 'hot rib' to Jim 
and Jim whips it onto the boat
Grant studies the methods of
re-ribbing a cedarstrip rowboat

Chris 'flies' his rib to the boat

Jim, Scott, Grant and Chris
soak up detailed instructions.

On the way home we put our notes together for future reference. We are already putting some of the hints into use!
