Here's the crane removing the old foremast with shrouds attached.
Above are Yana and Bryce. Yana has been working through maintenance and is Lady alum. She's getting off the boat soon to return to her home in Brooklyn, NY. Bryce is from Tahoe, and is a licensed EMT going to Maine Maritime Academy. He's getting credit for his summer aboard Bill.
Below is longtime Lady Alum (master, mate, steward) Captain Michael Kellick. Michael is our current Chief Mate and SAG representative (if any of us were SAG members...). That means he's our Hollywood connection. He's worked in "the business" and works as a liason between the filmakers and the boats to make everything run smooth. This coming week, the Lynx, Lady, and Bill are all going to be part of filming a movie about Blackbeard for the Hallmark channel. It will probably come out next year. Michael is known for his puns and great sense of humor.
