Rudder Reformation

Yard is happily underway and any passerby might gasp at what appears to be a very stripped down Roseway. But we know from experience that this is just par for the course--there is life after yard and Roseway will be back to her spectacular self before long.

Among other exciting projects, she's having her rudder restored, or at least partially restored by the super shipwright David Short who blesses us with his skills once a year. A new worm shoe is going on along with all the other standard sanding, painting, and cleaning (as in cleaning the holding tanks--yuck--thank you Kai and Tanner).

Life might not be glamorous at the yard but it sure is productive!
