Travis,

  What projects are you going to work on (beside the deck)?  I opened up the bridge hatch from the con (it's not an escape trunk) and the ceiling of it has old, flaking paint.  I thought that since you were working on restoring the forward escape trunk that you might want to check this one out, too.  Some electrical boxes are hanging by their wires and a lto of old wasp nests need to be cleaned out - Rick may have someone in mind for this.  I think that the only light up there is an emergency light (green housing with frosted glass) and it is very dark with the upper hatch shut.  I did not see any current wasp activity in there.

Regards,
Mark Sarsfield

Of course,  I have been speaking with the dean. Part of his cariculum is to spend 20 hours a day replacing deck on the boate  ;D


Seriously,  You guys in colage,  check with your porfs and deans (or whoever is in charge) about getting credit for work out here.   There are lots of things to do.  If you write up a good proposal, you might be suprised....
