The two topmasts, which now have 16 sides and are approaching a round spar. The topmasts will be installed for the 2019 season.
The aluminum frame custom-created by Hallett Sails to hold up a canvas cover, protecting Mary Ewhile she spends the winter in the water at Derecktor Robinhood in Georgetown.
The canvas cover in place over the aluminum frame and Mary E, just in time for the snow to fly!
