Concordia sloop and Arno Day lobsterboat

This time of year you see a lot of boats nosing out of barns. Brian Larkin's Blue Dolphin is looking good to go.
                            I believe Blue Dolphin was built by Arno Day

Down at Center Harbor it was very high tide, with gusts @ 15 knots, and heavy rain. Boats are in but nobody has done much sailing yet. I hope Scout will be in within a week or so.

I believe this little sloop was built here at Brooklin.
