Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op is leasing additional space to house the Nona S and Erickson 38.  The Nona S, is getting a new deck with purple heart beams, a plywood overlay and fiberglass.  In 1976, Nona S, a Skookum 52, was  built in the same building it is now located.  Owners, Frank and Tam, have fished this trawler in SE Alaska for ten years.  In November 2011, Shipwrights Co-op fabricated an aluminum house for the Nona S.  When the new deck is complete, Shipwrights Co-op will reinstall the aluminum bulwarks, the new house, and rigging.
