Good morning everyone. We are going great guns here. The main topmast came down yesterday. Annie and Sara did it pretty much on their own while the rest of us were busy getting spar stands in place. They also sent down all of the blocks and halyards from aloft on both masts. The mast heads are bare waiting for their winter coat of paint. Mary and Elisa spent a few hours in the park assembling the 40’long bows that are the rafters. You can see some of them sprung over the main boom in the background of one of the pictures. After school Sawyer was happy to go for a ride on the paint float (never leave home without an anchor, even on a paint float!). He is a natural born director.
Today we finish the cover frame and if all goes well we roll the plastic tomorrow. I had scarcely finished telling the crew how artsy the crossed anchor motif was when a visitor came down and took a picture of our efforts.
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
