The Horse has had her haul out and repairs and painting have been completed to the underside.We would like to thank our Crew and volunteers for their help with this task.

The barge was successfully moved up river. Thank you to Skipper jimmy , Vinik Marine and Bird Construction. As of now,  the barge is only accessible via small boat; so getting to and from the barge, and the Horse, will be challenging for the next several months.
