October 23rd Photos Page

Today we had 11 members of the Brass Team onboard, a great turnout and also a great time to hold our 1st annual awards ceremony!  It's hard to believe the ship has been open to the public now for three years, and during that time the people you see pictured below have together donated thousands of hours of their time polishing brass and doing whatever is necessary to help keep Big J looking good for visitors.  Everyone on the Team received a framed certificate today, honoring their commitment over the years, and recognizing them for a job well done, Bravo Zulo gang!  We had a great time onboard today, and took the opportunity to take lots of photos to mark the occasion.  We also got a lot of work done, including polishing 8 stanchions on the main deck.  Keep up the great work gang, I'm proud to be associated with each and every one of you!  My next day onboard should be November 13th, hope to see you there!

Hey, was that the original Brassmeister on the back of the tug Jupiter??
Nan and I were on the bow working and we thought we heard him call
out as the tug passed by.  Hope you're enjoying your work onboard
the Jupiter, come back and visit us sometime soon!
