GMT Composites of Bristol, RI (USA) recently supplied carbon fiber pocket booms for the total refit of SummerWind, a John G. Alden-designed schooner built in 1929. The GMT booms appear to perfectly match the sitka spruce in her masts, even when viewed from on deck. Full details.

With Goetz Custom Technologies back in business, construction has commenced on the Rogers 82 that had been in process. This cruiser/racer is now at the half way mark in the build process.
