schedule has been crazy this month and its been four weeks since my last
visit to the ship! It was great to be back onboard today and there
was lots to do. We had a good turnout from the Brass Team and
everyone had their tasks to complete. Today the weather was bitter
cold but I wanted to finish the compass cover I had worked on my last
time onboard. Since I had polished it and put it back in place
unprotected four weeks ago it had tarnished again rapidly so I had to
give it a quick polishing again before applying several coats of clear
lacquer. In between coats of lacquer I worked in the Brass Shop
polishing up several brass switch plates. As promised I managed to
finish up a little early today and go up to the Bridge for some photos
of the ships original wheel, back in place in the Conning Station.
In the last few weeks the Brass Team polished up everything in the
Conning Station, and with the wheel back in place, it looks
awesome! That's about it for today's trip, hope you enjoy the
WTD looks great, one down, about 1,000 to go!!

wheel is so highly polished you can actually see details of
items on the bulkhead in front of it, reflected in its surface!
