was busy this spring commissioning 225 boats for the season. T ere was also some repair work that needed to be fi nished. Over the winter and into the spring there were about 40 projects that required more than 200 hours to complete. T ere were two Abico 40s that needed


to be commissioned, hulls #2 and #3. One of these was given a dinghy launch and retrieval system and both received an electronics package. Presently a Grand Banks 46 is in for new


electronics, Freedom liſt and custom cockpit awning. T e metal structure was fabricated by Cumberland Iron Works and the canvas was done by Canvas Tech of Portland. An East Bay 46 has been in six weeks for

The schooner ERNESTINA-MOR-


RISSEY was hauled up on the railway at Boothbay Harbor Shipyard in Boothbay this spring. She is in for a three year major refi t. Several years ago they replaced the bow and this refi t will begin where they leſt off , which is at the break in the deck amidships. T ey will be replacing the keel, frames, planks, stern and deck. Once the masts were out they have removed the interior, systems and engine, and cabin house. Even before she arrived they began looking for the lumber needed. Some of the major pieces are already at the yard. T ese came from the Denmark, which is navy oak, and will be used for the keel, the fi rst aspect of the rebuilding project. T e sardine carrier GLENN-GEARY


has been hauled up on the other ways. She is in desperate need of a new owner and a major refi t. She will get some minor work done and then be moved to the side. Coming in next will be a 45-foot navy

Fish class in to be restored. T e backbone and frames have been replaced and they were putting in her new fl oors. Most of the planks will be saved so she will be fi nished the end of the year. Just leſt was the second W Class-22,
