Onboard again this Saturday to work and also to attend a dedication ceremony for a memorial plaque honoring fellow volunteers who have died.  It was a beautiful day weather wise and we had eight members of the Brass Team onboard.  Projects worked on today included finishing up the detailing in Turret #2, polishing the Windlass Wheels and Capstans on the Forecastle, and of course a few more portholes.  By next Saturday, if the weather cooperates, I will be done with all the main deck portholes.  That's about it for this trip, the Saturday Gang had a good turnout and we got a lot accomplished.  A few few photos from today's visit are below.
