It’s delicate work moving a 154-foot ketch in the dead of winter.

This footage taken at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine, of the boat Asolare has been sped up 20 times.

The video was shot on a cold, snowy day as the Front Street Shipyard team and Brownell Systems moved Asolare out of the facility. Viewers can see the wind moving the boat.

However, the December snow looks fairly light, given what since has fallen in New England.
