March 12th Photos Page

I've been onboard twice since my last volunteer day.  The first few photos below are from February 26th, a day which was spent cleaning up our new shop space and getting things like lights and phones working.  As previously announced, the Brass Team is moving into spaces that were formerly the Gym, Band Room and a small shop area in between the two.  On March 12th we had a pretty low turnout and did a variety of things onboard including moving furniture and installing the four control wheels down in Main Rudder Control.  Most of the remaining photos below were taken during the installation of the wheels, except the outdoor shots which were taken onshore.  My next day onboard will be March 26th, hope to see you there, come on down with the arrival of Spring we've got lots to do!

Starboard Rudder Control Wheels back in place.  There is a lot of brass to
polish down in this area, but this isn't a place many visitors will get to see.
