While the calendar told us that spring started a few weeks ago, we finally have evidence that it is truly here! The crocuses are blooming by the Boat Shop office, the piles of snow are getting smaller, and there is mud everywhere!
Just like with the flowers and trees, spring is truly a time of birth and re-birth here at the Boat Shop. It is a time to prepare to launch the new boats started over the winter. It is a time to reveal the beauty of restored boats to their expectant owners. And it is a time for our apprentices to focus on their final preparations to set forth on their new journeys in life in just a couple of months.
