Samoset Boat Works in Boothbay is currently working on a 30 foot Sea Tug, which was damaged in hurricane Sandy. The bulwarks had been cut down by someone else before the hurricane and this will also be repaired. They had the bottom stripped by Joe Sharp and they removed the decks on both sides of the cabin. They are now in the process of re-glassing the deck and then putting back the bulwarks. This project should be done sometime early summer. Also in the shop is a Highlander, #309, which is an open one design sailboat built in Ohio. She had a leaky centerboard box, which was in to be repaired. The centerboard box was cut out and a new one built out of mahogany. It was then fi tted back in place and epoxied. The centerboard was sand-

Boothbay Harbor Shipyard in Booth- bay has hauled up the steam yacht CAN- GARDA on their railway. Her owner fi nds that when hauled out with a travel lift she needs more work done to her topsides and they’re hoping that a railway will not fl ex her as much. She came up for her annual bottom paint, some minor systems work and Awlgrip for her starboard topsides. Work is also continuing on their storage customers, which includes some classic wooden yachts such as ALBACORE and KITTIWAKE.

Classic Custom Models of Camden is currently building a model for a local cus- tomer of an A. Nielsen designed 36 footer, 40 foot length overall, sailboat, which at one time was owned by Joel White. The hull is done and the cabin is going on as well as the bulwarks. Her hardware is being built using green gold which gives it the look of bronze. The mast has been built, along with her other spars, and they are currently being rigging. She is scheduled to be fi nished this summer. A Concordia 41 model, which they built about 20 years ago, was in for some signifi cant repairs. She had been purchased by her new owner, but when shipped the company failed to secure her in place and she bounced around in the shipping container. They have built two new spars and will also have to rebuild several new parts. Beyond the repairs due to the shipping issues, they are refi nishing her hardware, which has been a challenge. Rob Eddy was able to utilize his old system and the refi nished items are looking as good as new. They just fi nished and shipped a half hull of the well-known Murray Peterson designed SILVER HEELS, which is now owned in the Mediterranean. This was built for one of her former owners who now lives in Connecticut who owned her for 12 years.
