Working on a Rainy Day

Mark Donohue, Rosie Parks project manager, gives us an update on the work being done in the boatyard today! The rain isn't stopping any of our shipwrights today; they are hard at work on Rosie's bottom planks.
Pardon the background noise, the rain was making quite a racket.


  1. Question ,,,who owned this boat in its day ???

  2. Where can I find boats for sale in New England like this? I would love to invest in one! They would be so fun to have around!
