Winterizing Isabel: Part 2

The Museum's 1926 - 38' flat top sedan cruiser, Isabel, received more winterizing when the boat yard staff put on the fitted cover that came with her when the Requard's donated the Isabel in 1996. Although built by the Matthews Corp in Ohio and named after the corporate owner's daughter, Isabel has spent her entire life sailing along the Chesapeake Bay. She's not part of the historic fleet at CBMM (because she was built in Ohio), but Isabel is nonetheless a great example of the transition of work to play regarding vessels on the Chesapeake.
