Rusted screws and broken heads made for hard work as the steel runner blades were removed from their oak bases. The runners are a critical component of the Sea Scout DN 1228 recently purchased by Sea Scout Ship Intrepid (41).
Sea Scout Nate has stripped the hardware off DN 1228 and has sanded the wooden hull. Nate is planning to put a protective layer of fiberglass over the hull using the West Marine West System epoxy resin and hardener.
The Bay Village Sea Scouts latest move was to purchase a DN Ice Boat through Craig’s List. It will need some work to make it ready for the ice but the scouts are excited and willing to put forth the effort needed. We are all looking forward to sailing on the ice at Chippewa Lake this winter. Maybe we can go to BSA Greater Cleveland Council Boy Scout camp to sail?
