The shop is busy as boats are being restored over these winter months after a full season of use. Projects in the boat shop include putting the finishing touches on the Monte Byers, sanding and painting the gig boats and preparing our whaleboat for her trip to Mystic Seaport. There she will sail aboard the historic Charles W. Morgan to select New England ports as part of the restoration of this national treasure. For more information on this event, please go to www.mysticseaport.org.
As always, personal growth, education and hands-on learning is the focus here at ASF. Apprentices continue to work hard to change their lives as they learn new skills each and every day. In the middle schools, 6th and 7th grade students work on skateboards and an array of small projects to improve math competency and understand that learning really can be fun!
