Boatyard 2004 to 2005

Hauling Out and Work at Seaview North Boatyard

In December of 2004 we took the David B to Seaview North Boatyard in Bellingham. It took a little convincing to get them to haul the boat because it’s condition was so sad. We spent six months there. While we were there we replaced the rim log, put in new frames and planing in the back end of the boat.
