The Adventure organization is beginning 2012 at a rapid pace with our goal to have Adventure sailing in the 2012 Schooner Festival. She will not be completed, just able to sail with crew. On February 13th we plan to be hauled on the South railways at Gloucester Marine Railways starting at 2:30PM. We will then have the masts pulled within the next few days. I will schedule this project as soon as Adventure is on the rails
That will be a photo op! Mayer Tree Service is coming with a 270’ crane to pull 92’ masts out of a vessel 25’ in the air. Wasn’t sure if anyone from GMG, maybe EJ or Kim Smith might be interested. We will be going back in the water while calculations are determined for the engine bed, engine installation, water tight bulkheads , and ballast etc., but will be out again on the North railways the beginning of April to complete this phase.
