8/18/11: The Mast is Set in the Ida May

We set the mast in the Skipjack Ida May today. Many thanks to Harold Whitelock and his expertise with the heavy machinery.  We are that much closer to having sails on the boat and racing her on Labor Day!

Song for the Ida May

Hey Elbert, Gordon, Dean and family.  It's Rick Morris, "Porky".  I wrote a short song about the Ida May and wanted you to have it.


Good luck at the races. My money's on Ida May.

8/6/11: Mast and Boom Delivery

We delivered the mast and boom down to Scott's Cove in Chance MD and the next step will be to set the mast.  First, though, we will need to work on the mast, get the rigging done, and make the bottom of the pole fancy.  We are inching our way to completion!!!
