Restoration Update

Schooner Adventure......Restoration Progress
January/February 2006 Update

During the past three months, Adventure's restoration progress has moved steadily forward. Despite the relentless winter winds that tore away at the protective covers on deck and around the stern/transom, work continued on a daily basis.

Adventure's new transom is now complete. This is an incredible piece of work to put behind us in more ways than one. The restoration efforts on this section of the project were, by no measure easy. All frames, support timbers and stern planking were replaced. Her port and starboard sides were rejoined together with the exception of the top rails. and the new transom now awaits her rails and is ready for new deck planking.

The campaign to "Keep Ernestina Sailing" has begun! See the forum for more info.
