Navy 44' Luder Yawl turned over to Sea Scouts.

A group of Sea Scout advisors and consultants, expert sailors, from Cleveland, Ohio, visited the Naval Support Facility, Annapolis to survey the Navy 44" Luder Yawl, "Intrepid". After a close inspection the group adjourned to the Harris Crab House to discuss their findings over dinner of crab cakes and stuffed soft shell crabs.

The group concluded that the yawl was sound and would make a beautiful training vessel for the Sea Scouts.

A restful night was spent in the Navy Lodge, Annapolis, then a filling breakfast at the mess hall and it was back to work preparing the boat for it's trailer ride to Cleveland, Ohio. The photo below shows three generations of "Intrepid", ours is the oldest and closest to the River Severn.

At noon, Tim Beattie of Beattie Marine Transport, Inc. pulled into the yard with his rig and the process of loading started.
