Randi Lynn

Randi Lynn came to Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op in November after hitting a rock, while fishing in Alaska.  Jeff Galey, Project Manager, has been working with shipwrights Matthew Martz, Cliff Wiley, and Paul Van Dyke to replace planks, cork, paint, sheath, and build both stem iron and outer keel.  The steel plates around the chine of the vessel were removed during the repair and reinstalled this week.
