Lindsay Bagwell has just about finished grinding down the fiberglass hull of the new Scallop Days float but is hoping for help with puttying, painting, decking, building the wheelhouse, you name it.
The Scallop Days organizing committee is looking for a few volunteers to help build their new float.
Lindsay Bagwell volunteered to fix up the old one but discovered the wood was too far gone.
He’s busy now working on a new one to be built in the style of an old-fashioned stern trawler like the Royal Fundy.
Bagwell has cleared away the old wood and placed a donated 26-foot fiberglass hull on the trailer.
He’s just about finished grinding that down and is about to start on the putty and painting of the hull.

He plans to build a wooden deck inside, build a wheelhouse on the stern with a bench in front for the Scallop Days Queen.
Bagwell will welcome any help with the project. He can’t be reached by phone but welcomes Facebook messages or volunteers can drop by his house anytime at 94 Carleton Street where the float-to-be is sitting in his backyard.
