You know the difference between a wedding and a funeral is at a wedding you can still smell the flowers.   ::)

Figure it's time for a deck update.

Had a good turn out the last two work days and have completed the section forward of the bridge up to the front entrance.  Yesterday, we had a good number come out: Tim, Ed, Roger, Jack, Mark & Brandt.  We were all surprised on the amount of deck we got put down. The first photo is where we ended last time and the next two photos are of the area forward of the bridge when we finished yesterday.

Next work day is October 16th.  For those of you not participating in the Boy Scout thing, come on out and give us a hand.

We put down a record of 33 rows of boards.  Usually, it's around 12 to 16.  Definitely BZ to everyone on the crew.

Nice work as usual.  How much more deck is left to put down?

I would estimate that we are just over 50% done placing new deck.   One the good side, the old stuff in now completely up.

Thanks to Leilani, Brandt, Jack, John, Matt and Mike who came out today and helped complete the area forward of the bridge.  Yes -  the whole section forward of the bridge to the forward entrance (with the exception right in front of the entrance) has new decking.

Next Workday is tentatively set for October 30th - depending on whether or not I can get any one to come out.  If you can, let me know.

Here are a few photos of the completed area.

once again, excelent work.  It is so nice to be able to walk across the deck port to starboard again without having to be an acrobate.    keep up the good work guys.   This helps me get more for the boat and museum....

So, you guys decided to lay deck in front of the AC units on the 30th?  I figured that you wanted to tackle the bow next, but if we have to pull some boards, I guess not.  It makes sense to finish the whole area around the bridge.

Deck Update.  Over the last two work days, we have been able to complete the section aft of the bridge and forward of the A/C units.  We even got a little done around the A/C units before we ran out of time.

First photo is from the November work day and the next two are from last Saturday.  Thanks to all who have came out all year to help with this huge task.

Merry Christmas!

Everyone have a merry christmans and Happy new year.

Well, now that I work for the museum up the road, I'll be able to stop by and help a little more often.

We have been moving down the port side over the last two work days.  First photo is from two work days ago, the next two from last Saturday.  I appreciate Ed, Brandt, Leilani, Jason (and family), and Jack for coming out.

Next work day is April 2nd.  Would like to get the aft section done before the reunion in May...we need more people to come out.

Thanks.
