CBMM Prepares to Restore the Edna E. Lockwood by Dick Cooper

There was a moment ~ actually, it was more like a split second ~ when Joe Connor didn’t know which way the massive floating log he was standing on was going to roll. He did a little lumberjack two-step, steadied his balance and then went back to his task of looping a line over one end of the log so it could be towed out of the way. Another truckload of 120-year-old, 20,000-pound loblolly

pines was pulling into the grounds of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, and Connor and the rest of the Boatshop crew had a lot of hard work to do. A small group of Museum officials, members, volunteers and curious townsfolk watched from the safety of a nearby dock as one of the first major phases of the restoration of the 1889 log-bottomed bugeye Edna E.
