Keel treatment and roof structure

The volunteers began work on the roof structure, trusses consisting of five separate pieces: a king post two rafters and two braces.

Working king posts and rafters

 

In order to keep the newly returned keel in good shape, not too affected by the drying forces of the Florida sun, it has been coated with a pine tar solution.

The keel painted with pine tar with the rib placements marked.

Today we had visitors from the Foundation Board, Maury and Sam who met with Alexander and “Pedro”.¬† The group was photographed and¬†desigated by volunteer Patrick as the “braintrust”.
