On September 6, it seemed all of Essex converged onto Burnham's Boat yard in Essex to witness fanastic moment, when everyone heave-ho'd and raised the first frame of Harold Burnham's new pinky schooner the Ardelle. It was a gorgeous day and the atmosphere was just terrific, as we drank beer, signed well wishes onto the keel, listened to some great music and just savored the birth of a new schooner. Excellent day.
