Edna's Centerboard

video
Today in the boatyard, the shipwrights are pulling Edna E. Lockwood's centerboard out of the water so it can be cleaned. Mike Gorman was driving around the forklift for the heavy duty work, so everyone made sure to stay out of his way. The centerboard was safely pulled out of the water and set up in the boatyard to be cleaned...it really needs it. This is all in preparation for Edna to be hulled out in the near future. Stay tuned for updates!
Here is the finished product with a new coat of paint:
