|CBMM shipwrights, apprentices and volunteers are working on finishing Edna's main boom this week.|
|Today, the tapering of the timber continues, with the boom varying in diameter from 4" at one end to 6-1/4" at the middle and 4-1/4" at the aft point.|
Measurements are marked at intervals on the timber, with nails temporarily placed as guildelines.
Volunteers like Kevin Garber are helping with the project, as he is seen here holding and bending the batten for Marc and Joe to use as a guideline for shaping the main boom. A 14" circular saw will be used in the next steps of shaping this boom.
