That large timber sitting on the ground at the Shipwright’s Co-op, just beyond the Schooner Martha, a few weeks ago has been dramatically transformed into the new keel for Martha. The ballast was poured in Seattle and installed this week. The pouring was well done, with no additional work necessary before being jacked up into place. The highly skilled crew of shipwrights are keeping this project moving along smoothly.
