General Bill Sperry and crew continue to build the monument to the s.v. Nikolai, making steady progress through all kinds of weather conditions. The first beam went up on the project today. A dedication ceremony is being planned for later this summer - watch this space for details. (With thanks to Kitty Sperry for contributing these project photos).
