Bugeye Restoration

Because JOLLY DOLPHIN’s three sail bateau sail-plan evolved from the traditional Log Canoe and Bugeye workboat rigs we spent several days at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum to witness the next step in the restoration of their historic nine-log bugeye. Thursday morning the riggers placed the EDNA LOCKWOOD on the marine railway so she can have time to swell up and close the seams between the logs before rigging and floating free in October.
