Gig Delivery

From boatbuilding33014

The gig was moved off the strong back and into the repair bay. Many hands made light work. The next to last photo in the slideshow shows the “ballot” for naming the boat with about 30 choices, and the last shows the seven finalists with their vote totals. “Pete Seeger” seems to be the clear favorite, but it’s not over until it’s over. Rob will send around a reminder on this later in the week–in the meantime, let the lobbying begin! We’ll have a final vote next Sunday. Absentees can vote (same deal, five votes each) in advance by email, but if there’s a runoff on Sunday those present will decide.

A Gig is Born!

Work is almost completed on our new 5 plank Whitehall Gig. All we need now is a paint job and a name.
The dory keel is finished and ready to take her place on the strong back.
