95 year old wooden boat – The Lady Mabel is back on the water after repairs in Charleston

One of the Charleston Marina’s oldest wooden boats, The Lady Mabel, made it back into the water on Thursday morning after spending two months undergoing repairs at the Charleston Shipyard. The 52-foot boat was tall enough to stop traffic, as the draw bridge to the marina had to be opened for it to pass. Mabel is a 95-year-old wooden boat that is still used as a commercial fishing vessel. Few fishermen still use wooden boats and even fewer use boats as old as Mabel. >click to read< 14:29
