King Plank Etc.
Silent Maid was having bunk surgery, lost her blocking for the boom crutch, and traveler. John designed a new folding crutch, She reflects her surroundings.
TORCH lost her kingplank. The X is her bronze cross banding to reduce twist by triangulating her frames and planking. The O is her mast partners.
The X is repeated on her hull by the afternoon sun. Rich and Hartly planted a forest of cedar in the old screwholes in her frames.
TP got sanded and more paint and varnish. Sheerstrakes Burgundy red, varnish on rub rails, SILENT MAID white on deck,
