Saturday 28-November-2017 is Sculptor's 82nd birthday

Sculptor - a boat built by boat builders rather than a boat built by ship builders - and so much more elegant for that.

Sculptor is a 'Star' class boat named for the Sculptor Constellation

Sculptor Day

Sculptor with the top planks up
We enjoyed a Sculptor day on Saturday 16-May.

We had the pleasure of the company of Iain and John from Ellesmere Port.  Iain talked about the proposed maintenance schedule for Sculptor in the latter part of 2016 when she will go to Ellesmere Port for ongoing maintenance specifically, but not exclusively, looking at the gunwales along the full length of the boat and the keelson.  John is a 'heritage' carpenter who will oversee the work on Sculptor when she is at Ellesmere.

In the afternoon the side cloths were rolled back and the top planks raised and some cargo removed.  Thanks to all who helped.

Volunteer hours 25 (total 786 to date)
