Baker North Shore Sailing Dinghy is advanced. Jenn & Chris worked with Carl Bergeron, Joe Nemec & volunteers on 17 & 18 March

Carl drills with Doc's direction while Chris picks next tool
Centerboard box rough cut
Casey checks seating for box
First rib/frame of sassafras is steaming hot
So many hands on one piece of sassafras
Dr. Joe & Dr. John check the placement of the next frame/rib
Casey & Doc add another clamp
Joe steadies the skiff while Casey & John work
Carl & Joe enjoyed the day & helped at AFAD
Chris gave the thumbs up as he checked the first ribs
