The Move to Pennsylvania Ave.

The boat had been stored at Jamestown Boat Yard for the last 12 to 15 years (www.jby.com). It had been mostly covered with a tarp and steel conduit framing. I removed the tarp in May and the move home was on Tuesday, June 4, 2002. She was so far into the back of the boat yard that JBY had to use their special boat trailer to get it out far enough for Conanicut Marine (www.conanmarina.com)to get their transport trailer under it. It was heartening to hear all the comments about her lines when she came into the light and noone had even known she was there. Conanicut Marine's driver is extremely skilled with his rig. In the pictures of the vacant boat house, you can see a tree and a large boulder that are seemingly in the way of getting such a huge trailer in the center of the boat house. The driver wasn't sure he could make it but was willing to try. I left a centerline painted on the grass for his guidance and when he backed in, he went by the boulder with about one inch to spare and put the boat within 3 inches of the centerline on his first try! We then leveled her fore and aft to facilitate easier work for the restoration. I can level her port and starboard with the poppets. The mast has been stored on an outside rack and is very weathered. I think the aluminum extrusion is okay though.
