Boathouse Activity Heats Up as the Weather Cools Down

As the sweltering summer weather gives way to cooler, dryer fall days, JGTSCA members are re-energized as they tackle a variety of projects in the boathouse. During a recent Friday night session, the boathouse was a beehive of activity.

Rob Pittaway and Wil Iturrino worked diligently attaching oar leathers to several new sets of oars. George Spragg was adding the covering to his wooden canoe. Russell Smith and Bob Reed were busy performing maintenance on the club dories. Andy Strode, Sandy D’Esopo, and John Hacunda worked on the new skiff. Bill Armitage and Paul Robertson were planing wood in preparation for the next boat project.
