Flying Jib II, a classic Lightning class sailboat that has been to WoW for work in years past, is back in the shop. She is sitting in the space formerly occupied by To 'N Fro. While she doesn't take up quite as much floor as the former occupant, everyone is happy to see another fine old boat in the shop, and to have an opportunity to bring her back closer to her original beauty. Bruce and Jeff are assessing the condition of the boat to determine what needs to be done for her this year.

The skiff was caulked, had an outer keel and skeg attached, and has been set aside awaiting the return of the students. It is temporarily on display in the hallway outside the shop.
