With another busy sailing season completed, Adventuress sat at rest in the slings of the Port of Port Townsend's 300-ton travel lift awaiting a hoist. The 105-year old schooner was ready to be moved to her winter cover for the final phase of a decade-long restoration.

The work is being undertaken by Haven Boatworks and this winter is the Capstone Deck Project. The work will entail the replacement of her deck and the supporting deck structure in just over 24 weeks. Executive Director, Catherine Collins places the cost of this winter's work at more than $925,000, of which $394,000 comes from the Washington State Heritage Capital Project funding. The entire $2.5 million, 10-year restoration started in 2009 with work on the hull and is scheduled to be completed in May of 2019. It will ensure that Adventuress' mission of fostering environmental sustainability, youth development, and maritime careers through shipboard programs on the Salish Sea will continue for many decades.
