The restoration of Pirate began in the autumn of 1999. The initial work of removing the interior, deck house and deck were performed while she remained in the water. Subsequently Pirate was hauled and her bottom scraped in preperation to replacing most of her frames. The images on the pages below document in detail the steps which were undertaken during the restoration. Up until December 2002 work was performed at The Boatwright shop, 1150 1/2 NW 46th Street, Seattle in the Ballard neighborhood. She was successfully re-launched at Seaview East Boatyard on Feb. 22, 2003. Subsequent work was performed in the water at The Center for Wooden Boats. She resides there today, offering public sailing every Sunday from May through October. Feel free to contact Scott Rohrer <email@example.com> if you want to check our schedule and visit Pirate.
