Bay Retriever prepares for a snowy launch

Her decks illuminated by the spreader lights, Bay Retriever is seen here getting ready to go out for the '02 Parade of Lights through Baltimore Harbor. Her decks were covered with 6" of snow, meaning the sails remained furled.

Bay Retriever's pedestal

The pedestal of the Bay Retriever, including the mount for the GPS Track/Plotter. Although this is a pretty basic device by today's standards, it's small enough to rotate easily and be viewed from all the convenient steering locations. The mount is a 10" teak board with two 1" holes cut by a hole saw 9.5" apart to match the pedestal. Next the board was cut with a table saw. Three screws compress the two pieces back together around the pedestal, and it has survived plenty of abuse.
