Chesapeake Bay Skipjack
Frank Antes, Tom Evans, and David, Gordon, and Elbert Gladden work on the outer stem of the Chesapeake Bay Skipjack, Ida May. We get a visit from Reverend Z, the former preacher of the Rock Creek Methodist Church. Watch as we also work on the bowsprit support, get the drill stuck in the wood, and have to use the vise grips to get the bit out. Gordon gets the nickname "Straight Gladden" for his prowess with the drill, but David grabs the moniker "Strong Gladden" for being able to pull the stuck bit out of the wood.
