A beautiful day in Friendship, Maryland Click the image for a better view! We went aloft on this completely re-rigged Beneteau 411 to cover tang holes. The birds were making their way-in and building a nest. Who wouldn’t, those are some big holes that make a great front door. “Come on in” We used black […]
