IDA MAY

Chesapeake Bay Skipjack

Frank Antes and Gordon, Elbert, and David Gladden worked on the starboard side log rail of the Chesapeake Bay Skipjack, Ida May today.   We feared that bending the salt treated lumber so far would crack the wood in half, and that's just what happened:  the board busted, exploded really.   We lagged and clamped the board to try to bend it, but a whole morning's work went up with a bang.
