We have  three of our fleet all ready for the summer sailing season.  And the Buttonswan Project is well under way.  Following are photos and updates.

Thanks to our friends in Mystic Seaport who helped Georgina  when she went to visit and took photos of their Buttonswan.  She then asked if they could send us measurements of the planks as that would help us immensely.  They sent back great drawings.  Nick also got a hold of a friend who whipped up some computer images and drawings.
Rob and Arnt milled up the yellow cedar.
So now everything is ready for lining (measuring and cutting the planks)
