Bill - a Georgetown College grad takes a sander to the Keuka Lake trout boat

Bill made short work of the wood putty covering the new ribs (frames) on this 1924 Keuka Lake (NY) trout fishing boat that's being restored at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.
A good Hoya (Georgetown) grad makes short order of this sanding job in May. It was left in October before everything got busy & cold in the Apprentice For A Day (AFAD) shop at CBMM.
Bill also helped router out the underpinnings for the seats on the Rushton rowboat.

Hopefully, he'll come back for other AFAD days.

The third Smith Island Skiff is on the calendar to start on 4 June. The strong back will be set up again then it's on to a new build.
