Liberty Cover In Place for the Winter

The view from above while slushing the mast.

ISEA's Friendship sloop Liberty received her winter cover this Friday - Saturday at the Centre Pointe dock in Greilickville. Tom Kelly, Don Gorski and Dave Williams fitted the shrink-wrap cover. Prior to covering, the mast got a good coating of "slush", a mixture of pine tar, turpintine, and linseed oil that acts as a preservative.

The finished product, looking very sleek for a 1908 design sloop.
