      Tresarus is having a 50-year workover. Some of the lower planking
      was a little punky, and the plank ends fore and aft tend to be a
      little vulnerable if not steadily maintained. But she's in fine shape.
      Black locust stem this winter. She had a new transom about 3 years
      ago.
