To Do List

Matt met with Jens Lange of Baltic Boat Works to confirm the winter work for Lucie last Monday. They reviewed the Winter “To Do List”, which Johnny Walker will supplement next week after inspecting Lucie. Johnny has agreed so long as he is both available and in town to continue to assist as Captain of Lucie. Joe Loughborough of LMI will oversee with Jamie Hilton, the Skipper for Lucie, and Jacob Vargish, Naval Architect.

The “To Do List” is:
