Here is a link to the report done by Cha 6 in Tulsa.  The CPO's were did an excelent Job.  We wen for coverage at thispoint.   We still have to paint the deck and the interori of the supper structure and the sheers.   The CPO's did not have enough tme to work on these areas and we still need to finish the deck work before we can Paint the deck.  There is a lot of deail work.  It will happen.  The end result is that she looks 200% better.   check my posting on face book for a photo.

Next Deck Work Day - Saturday, September 18th @ 8 AM.

Can we get Channel 6 out of this?  They've come out for just about everything else except the deck replacement project.

Up close it looks pretty rough.  We just pressure washed it and whatever didn't flake off got painted over.  Still, the Navy guys did a good job and I'm happy that she doesn't look like a mothballed derelict, anymore.

Tom,

Smooth is a relitive term.  I am very glad that I do not have the challenges that you are working on.

It does get fun LOL We have found areas where the primer was put on on top of 1/8" rust (large areas) really makes you happy. Batfish looks great.
