We also launched the yawl boat Arno yesterday. She is as tight as a tick, a happy sight for me having just replaced a plank. The harbor was flat calm at low tide so we spun her around end for end into her usual summer position (not pictured here yet). The new crew members remarked how agile Mary is in the yawl boat under the stern. Jen and Sawyer gave a gentle nudge under the bow with Chadwick just to get her spinning. It was like a schooner pirouette. Very cool for me to see how well everyone did. Sawyer took a few turns at the tiller of Chadwick afterwards… a very happy boy.
Today we have a preliminary Coast Guard hull inspection and begin sanding the topsides.
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
