Rail and Case
Newt reinstalled the grab rails on Old Silent Maid. They look very tiny compared to the brass pipe rails on the Replica Silent Maid, especially when you think about the ton or more of human ballast hanging off the side.
Jackie & I worked on the comet, stabilizing the new frames and then removing the inner keel. It had to come off in pieces because it was glued to the centerboard case with Resorcinol and the case was rabbeted. Chisel work.
