Out for a jolly in Gardiner's Bay Stored in-water, winter work begins in the railway shed Hard sanding knocks back her topsides Prepped and taped-off for varnish work <em>Nautilus</em>' topsides complete Her name in place, she's ready to go Winter is done for this classic Herreshoff Spring Fever: Launch Day <em>Nautilus</em> safely launched on the marine railway <em>Nautilus</em> waits for her mast to be stepped Raising sail -- so early in the morning Her classic grace against a pearly sky <em>Nautilus</em> ever a Herreshoff classic
