Riggin Work Week part 2: At the Shop

The barn/garage at the Finger/Mahle house in Rockland is the site of a good deal of fit out work.

Many parts on the schooner are stored here or moved here for repair and refinishing.

This photo shows the blocks which facilitate sail handling on a traditional sailing vessel.

They have been repaired as needed and are now being given a new coat of White paint.

All the windjammers have a similar type of on-shore shop area.

Most of the schooners were working on shore early in the week due to the giant storm that effected the Northeast.
