S/V Kallista #1

October 25th – November 11th 2011

F. J. Dion Yatch Yard – Salem, MA

I worked aboard the sailing vessel Kallista, a 42′ Whitby Ketch getting it ready for an offshore cruise down to St. John. Prepping and painting the hull are just a few of things I helped with. This clip is of Captain John W. Lee in the bosun’s chair setting up what he patented called “PINEAPPLES” (mop heads) which would protect the main sail from chaffing on the rigging lines.  I was down bottom, belaying. I went up next and installed the port-side “PINEAPPLES”.
