What is the status on getting the torpedoes from WA?  Chris said that he's still waiting for the green light from you guys to pick them up for delivery.

I will check.  The last I heard was that they were waiting for delivery of the chocks.  Paid for by the Foundation

I will post on this soon.

just got word from Gil.  The chocks are on their way.  Once they arrive we can arrange for transportation.  I do not have a time frame on this yet.  The Sub vets are planning a work party in OCT.  It would be nice to have the deck in place by then and then all that they have to worry about is the torpedos.

Agreed.  Between the reenactors, the Creek students, and other help I woud think that most or all of the deck would be completed by the fall.  Speaking of deck, have we determined from photos where we want to re-install access hatches in the deck?

I am not going to worry about acess hatch placement changes unless we have hard evedince to change.  The hatches that are there now provide access to critical area.  We have talked about restoring the original steal deck forward of the escape trunk.  I am not againd toing that.  We will need steal to do this however.  We also have a lot of restoration that needs to be done to the supperstructior.  The imediate sutuff can occur after the deck is layed...

Another bump.  Shippers wanted to know how the torpedo chocks are coming along and if any target date may be set, yet.

Rick,

  You probably saw the emails this week, but the torpedoes are ready for pick-up.  Send Chris your intentions (whether we're still waiting for October or if that date has been moved forward/backward).

Somebody have a spare torpedo?  We could use one in our Veterans Park in Hamilton New Jersey. We're the only branch not covered by any memorial in this park.

I understand your torps have arrived.   Can you take a few pics of them and post them up?

Yes, they are there as Rick pointed them out.  I was going to take a picture after our deck work today, but my wife started feeling sick so we packed up and left and only after I got home realized that I didn't take the photos.  Maybe Rick and snap a few photos.

Hey fellas, thanks for the nice letter of appreciation you sent me for assisting the Batfish in getting her long lost torpedoes back were the belong.  It was my pleasure and I'm glad all worked out for the volunteers and the Batfish.  I will frame it and mount it on my office wall.
