We’re on days 4 and 5 of having Ryan and Burt come to help us, and we are just knocking all kinds of projects out!

After having bonded the sill on the bridge deck, we can then, finally, remove the supports from underneath the boat. What it also allows us to to is bond in the lower beam, which connects the two pieces of the bridge deck together – which was bonded back in the spring.

Then there is the biggest project ahead of us – getting the transom bonded on. But before we can get that far, we need to get it in the tent first. It’s too big and heavy to go up and over – so – any ideas of how we did it? 😀


Much love from Annapolis!
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
