CBMM’s floating fleet gets a spring spruce up

Under the guidance of Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Shipwright James DelAguila, the maintenance season for CBMM’s floating fleet of historic vessels once again is in full swing, with all work done in full public view. As is typical this time of year, work proceeds with the most-used and popular vessels, including the 1920 buyboat Winnie Estelle, which received some system upgrades and a fresh coat of paint, thanks to CBMM’s dedicated volunteers and staff.
