Aye, Aye Captain Suckie !!!   :D

Here is our report:

At COD on Saturday we had the most work done in a single day by the largest bunch of volunteers in our 38-year-history!  The crew included USSVI COD Base members, local sea cadets, and COD's memorial crew!  What got done? Well the 10-hour long workday included moving 1,000-lb slabs of concrete, scores of 30-lb paver blocks, digging foundations, loading our pop machines for opening day, cleaning up the COD's interior, and hell, we even hung a venetian blind in the window of our new workshop!  I was so busy I only took a few photos!!!   >:(

About 3.000 Ibuprophen pills were consumed by the workers at the end of the day!   ;D

Aye, Aye, Darrin!

I don't have any progress to report.  I'm still here though!  Day by day!  Thanks for being here, friends.

I just posted our updates in the Cobia folder. I was busy trying to make sure the boat didn't get pushed half way across the river and snap power/gas lines in the process! It's been a rough winter here...
