I don't have a cordless, but I have 100' of extension cord that may reach down into the control room outlet.

We'll have to see...anything to speed up the process.

Rick, I'll need to get the keys for the Conning Tower hatch so I can run my extension cord into the C.R.

Thanks.

There is one outlet in the CT above the TDC mock-up.  If your cords are three-prong, there should be an adapter still up there that I bought a few months ago.

Made some progress today in spite of the rain.  First we rigged up tarps to deflect most of the rain, however, I was underneath the deck and ended up soaked.  Oh well...no rain, no gain.  We were able to pull of the section starboard and aft of the escape hatch.  That was an effort as most of the threads were coated w/ paint.  Rick and Travis removed many more bolts from the deck that will be removed next.

We put bolts thru the holes in some of the decking that was previously put down but not totally installed.  We were able to add one more 2x2 before we ran out of time.  I thank my wife, Ed, Brant, Rick, Mark from the board, and Travis for coming out and helping on the deck.

Used 1.5 cans of WASP killer to destroy 2 nests   buck2 ...knocked 5 bogeys out of the air   Cool  ...got stung once.   Angry  I'll be packin' next time   knuppel2

I'm just kidding about #3.  Everyone busted their rear today.

It does my heart good, not only to see such hard work being accomplished by a good team but to see that it includes some younger folks. Cherish those of high-school or college age and do everything possible to feed and retain their interest. They are your future.

BZ's to everyone involved!

Great Work Guys. Documenting work accomplished  and showing what needs to be done,really helps when getting people interested in donating money.

Pictures are great.  Finally get to see Rick, who I've spoke to on the phone several times.  One thing that I think is important are BEFORE and AFTER photos.
Does no good to show a nice shiny Torpedo Tube inner door because we would think it's that way all the time.  If you are going to add a piece of gear, say in Radio, then show the hole before or the gear that was there;  or the same applies to a panel that is going for refurbishing. 
We all expect to see the pristine final product, but we need to see the road that got us there.

Looks good, guys.  The tarp looks like it worked out pretty well, too. 

It's probably time to get the pressure washer back out and spray down the newly removed sections.

I'm putting this out a month in advance.  Who can come out on August 23rd to help with the deck?  We need more than two people to make this happen.

Make plans, re-arrange schedules...you got a months notice.  Come on out.

I don't see a reason why I can't be there.  So, count me in.

Sadly I am starting a new job in the Army and I won't have the time to make it out there to help. One day I will make it out there though. Keep up the great work folks,

By the way, what are you guys doing with the OLD deck?  I believe the Silversides sold/is selling short pieces of her old deck.  I don't see why you guys couldn't do that too, especially if it is original?
