The scheduled docking date for Pampanito has changed to September 15th 2016.  We are still planning a 6 week schedule.

Rich,
The Pampanito is looking great in terms of progress... I can only imagine the smell, though...

Rich is doing an awesome job showing what all is being done in the drydocking. I'm trying to share some of the highlights on the Facebook page for SUBMARINEMUSEUMS.ORG.

I have copied my Facebook blog postings into a web page for those that do not have Facebook access.  It is a bit awkward to use, but will provide the photos to those that dislike Facebook even more than I do:

We have a pretty long task list of follow up items to do that will includes a formal report.  It will take time to catch up.
