July 17th Photo Page

Another Saturday onboard polishing portholes, the end is definitely in sight though!  There can't be more than another dozen or so left to do after today, I'm on the downhill slide now!  The Brass Team had another good turnout today and a bunch of the guys continued with our ongoing efforts to restore Main Fire Control up on the O5 level.  Most of the photos below show progress in that area as well as a few from the CEC as I passed through on my way home.  My next day onboard should be July 31st, hope to see you there!

What a change to go from Main Fire Control, circa 1940's, to the ships
modern CEC down on the O2 level.  Hard to believe we're on the same ship!
