The Green Flash (former Scarlet Lady and several other names) sits awaiting restoration in a desert lot in San Carlos, Mexico. The fence is nearly complete, the work has begun on another scaffold, the 4 kw Onan generator is getting a tune up, a half-ton crane has been purchased and will be converted to electric to lift materials to the deck of the boat. More infrastructure has been added, including a 6'x12'x6' trailer, portable toilet, band saw, air compressor, table saw, pressure washer and work benches. The cooler weather starting in October will be the time when we start the heavy work of removing the rotting decks and cabin, cutting new bulkheads and installing structural beams for the new topsides.
