These periodic posts are made to keep Ship 72 members, parents, and interested folks informed as to our activities and our plans.
I welcome positive feedback.
special thanks to Tony Davis who
gave us a great tour today of Areys
Pond Boat Yard. I think we all learned
something whether it was in his
drafting office, the spar/wood milling
area, the boat building area, the
boat painting building, the winter
storage building, the rigging/welding
building or listening to him describe
various boats on the dock. We ended
the tour all boarding the 1905 27
Crosby Catboat at the same time
with room to spare. It was obvious
what he told us about catboats,
that the beam (width) is half the
length of the boat
the tour we put on our life-jackets,
boarded the dinghys and practiced
our rowing skills in a good wind
that gave us a little challenge.
Everyone made it back to the dock
safe and sound. From the dock we
drove back to the landship, had
some hot dogs and soft scrubbed
the boats preparing them for a good
coat of wax. It was a great day
of learning and work where fun was
had by all.
you everyone for making it a super
Wednesday May 20, we will meet at
7:00 pm 8:00 pm at the Landship.
Bring a friend,
NAUSET SHIP 72,
