I welcome positive feedback.
first joint Nauset Ship/Club 72
event, a boat maintenance work party
on Saturday, May 8th, was a great
success. It was very rewarding to
see 14 students and 6 adults working
together for the first time to prepare
our fleet for an early launch date
this year. There is still more work
to do but we are well on our way.
mast was rotated on the Luna's so
that Mr. Lee can complete the challenging
task of rewiring the sloop. The
bottoms were painted on O'l Gaffer
and Luna. Wood rails, hand rails,
slats, doors and tillers were sanded
and the first coat of varnish put
on much of the wood work. Thirteen
12 ft. Surfboat oars were washed
boats were moved to make the work
easier and then put back the way
we found them with no hardship to
the environment or to Mr. Crawford's
residence following the scout practice
of replacing or leaving things the
way we found them or "better"
..... and we still found time to
devour 5 large pizzas.
was a great day and Mr. Jim, Capt.
Ron, Adviser Katrina and myself
enjoyed the interaction working
with the crew and parents. Next
on the schedule is a tour of Arey's
Pond catboat building facilities
and boat yard on Saturday, May 16th
from 10:00 am to noon.
you all for a super day,
