For the past two winter season's our beloved Finback has gone through some intense repairs. Last winter fifty percent of Finback's starboard side was ripped off and replaced. During year two of a three year project, Finback is getting new white oak frames as well as African mahogany planking. All of the deck beams were also repaired and many of them were replaced. Finback was originally planked with southern yellow pine but Will and Andrew opted for a beautiful mahogany wood which is a rot resistant wood, in hoping for another forty years of cruising on the Salem Sound!
