Lots Happening Down At The Gloucester Marine Railway Despite The Cold Weather From Mary Barker

Hi Joey,

In my travels this week I found lots happening down at the Gloucester Marine Railway despite the cold weather.  The crews have been busy doing winter work

like sanding hulls,and repairing bilge pumps.   On Saturday, the Adventure had a crew on board to clean the bilge and salt water wash the forecastle to prepare for

the installation of bunks.  The Adventure will have people on board most days from 9 to 3 doing the carpentry world.   The Phyllis A’s crew were also taking advantage

of the ‘warm’ (30 degree) weather and dis some salt water washing of her decks.  I’m sure anyone who wanted to volunteer to help with any of the maintenance and

restorative projects for these historic boats would be most welcomed.
