The Eagle is in flight


Lance is on his way to pick up five sails that we will be repairing for the USCGC Eagle. The Eagle is a 295' Barque that is used as a training vessel for Coast Guard officers. She carries about 21,000 square feet of sail. We are repairing five of the sails including the forecourse which is one of the largest sails she carries.  Lance left early this morning to go to New Londoin CT which is a 7-9 hour drive each way. He should be back sometime tomorrow, although I wouldn't be surprised if he pulled an up and back trip in one day. We will have the sails on the floor Wednesday. If you are in the area and want to see some interesting sails stop by the loft during the next couple of weeks. I'll post more once we get started on the repairs.

I hope he's not driving through DC tomorrow. Sounds like a neat project.
