GMR and Schooner Adventure happenings

Hi Joey,

The Gloucester Marine Railway is a busy place these days.  Everyone is busy getting their boats ready now that 

we have some warm weather.   The tug Towline is being painted.   The Ardelle came out on Monday and was 

powerwashed, Harold Burnham expects her to go back in Wed morning at high tide, about 5 a.m.   The Adventure’s crew are

very busy painting, caulking, and replacing the outer section of the stem.   Geoff Deckenbach expects her to go 

back in on Wed evenings high tide, about 5 p.m.  The Adventure will motor over to the Harbor Loop which she will make

her new home by the Maritime Museum.  Meanwhile, the Phyllis A’s team is raring to go with her restoration, we are awaiting 

word on when she can come up into dry dock.    Workers pictured include Geoff, Manny from GMR, John Miles, Tony Finnociarro, 

Sarah Tuvim, Katherine Richmond of KR Painting all on the Adventure,  and Doug Parson’s with the Phyllis A.   Michael Bergman

stopped by.   He is very anxious to get back onboard to continue working on making the rat’s rails (ladder like structure up to the 

top of the masts).
