Eric Leegard puts out the sailboat Mariah's anchor on Tuesday afternoon at Sandy Beach. Leegard, a retired boat-building instructor for the University of Alaska Southeast, deliberately beached the boat to repaint the bottom. He plans to do this again in a couple of days to paint the other side. Leegard taught a UAS class that built the 17-foot Fiberglas boat in 1979.
