The white hulled boat is a 18 ft B.N. Morris, serial #6255, for Amiee Ayers of Sunapee N.H.. We believe it was built around 1910 but its hard to tell because the Morris serial numbering code has yet to be broken! This boat also has the closed gunwales that has been so popular in the shop this year. I'll be putting on the outside stem bands, installing the flag sockets and a bit of other hardware. The boat is basically ready to go except for the seats which are being caned this week, I hope.
Its been warm and sunny all week. The fire wood pile that had been going down very fast now appears plenty big enough to last us as long as we need it.
