3/12/11: Inner Stem

Frank Antes, Tom Evans, Cody Donalds, and Elbert, Gordon, and David Gladden work on the inner stem of the skipjack Ida May.  The stem fits great, or as Tom said, "She fits like a glove."  Gordon gives Elbert a socket wrench that doesn't work very well and Elbert tells Frank to throw it in the river.  This was a big job and we are happy to be over this hump.

3/5/11: Pulling Nails

Gordon, David, and Elbert Gladden and Cody Daniels pull large, rusty boat nails out of oak wood of the Ida May's deck. Pulling old nails out of oak wood is not an easy task. The oak grabs the nails and holds them fast. After we finish tearing off the deck, we will replace it with deck boards and then marine plywood.
