Don’t know how we managed with just two boats. More than enough rowers to crew all three boats.
The William S Shipp is back on the water! After a year in retirement, she joins Sea Shadow and Sea Spirit, our other two Canadian skiffs. Seeing the three of them on the water is indeed a lovely sight. Once again a big thank you to Renbrook School, Toby Goodrich and Jane Shipp for their generous donation. The William S Shipp is a much appreciated addition to our club and it’s growing membership.
Our To Do List is down to the last few items 1) Glue in floorboard supports 2) Install turnbuttons to hold floorboards in place 3) Apply one more coat of paint to the interior and sheerstrake 4) Reapply the name to both sides of the bow
The William S Shipp should be ready to relaunch by the end of the week.
We’re getting close. Once the William S Shipp has been painted on the outside and turned right side up, the foot stretchers and the floorboard supports will be installed. Hope to be in the water early next week.
