TSCA February Meeting
The Sandbaggers are coming home to the Seaport May 29- June 16.
Spyder with more planks fitted.
Sneakbox is sanded and rails bunged ready for paint & varnish.
Silent Maid with "box beam " floorboards installed. This is a design improvement on Francis Sweisguth's original work to reduce potential hogging of the boat. The floorboards create a box-type structural beam stiffening the boat longitudinally along both sides of the centerboard slot.
The hull is almost flat here and so gains little from the compound curves forward and aft.
TSCA at the Boatshop. President Mike Wick opening meeting, discussions about Spring program at the seaport and a sail camping trip around Wye Island. Greg wants help with MASCF XXVI.
