It has taken a good part of a year and many, many hours of dedicated volunteers to bring this boat back to new condition.
A group of volunteers lead by Pierce Hance literally took the boat apart, removing every screw in the hull, replacing twenty one ribs, adding a new oak centerboard trunk, a new deck covered in Dynel and new oak transom. All of the hardware was brought back to new brass brightness. The original trim was taken down to bare wood and re-varnished with many coats.
The boat has been christened the Molly Gann after a long-time resident of Gann Road from the 1800's. Gann Road is at the edge of 3 Mile Harbor where the Molly Gann will have her sea trials this spring. Ginny Geradi has added the Molly Gann name to the transom in gold leaf outlined in the green of the hull. The Molly Gann will be a welcome addition to the boats that are available for members' use.
