Excellant, they were impressed with the inside and one of the inspectors was here last year and was amazed at what we had accomplished. When we explained about the steel and paint being donated and that were spent last year raising the money to get started they were pleased with that. Also they were quite suprised when we gave them out written  maintainance plan. Lesley said that when they finished and went on the target they were telling all the rest of the inspectors that they had to go see the Drum that it was beautiful.

We got our air compressor yesterday, 15HP 50cfm and will put it on the boat after the first series of filming for the movie is finished on 5 May. We recieved a donation from the Alabama WWII sub vets that enabled us to buy the compressor and Quincy compressor gave us a huge discount. We also just recieved some personal donations from members of the redstone base which is a big help. We are really getting excited about getting to start on the hull.
