"Saving a Skipjack" a Short Film

Film made into a short film of a famous skipjack sinking in the tangier sound off of Deal Island, Maryland.
Wendy Robertson's insight:

In the middle of the 2011 Skipjack Races, the century old skipjack "Kathryn" hit a race marker and began taking on water.  Once back to port, the Kathryn was removed from the water and placed "up on the hard" for a three year restoration project.  Captain Harold "Stoney" Whitelock and Coastal Heritage Alliance (http://coastalheritage.org/) Director Mike Vlahovich hope to put the finishing touches on the restoration and have the "Kathryn" ready before this year's race in September.
