Next Work day is Saturday, August 22nd.

Plan to attend...need help with the deck.  Got about 6 or so planning to come out.

Shall we start around 6 or 7 AM to beat the heat?

Ahh man, the weekend after I start school. It seems like I always am busiest around the workdays, that sucks.

I can manage 7 a.m.  We'll have to break for lunch a little earlier - no later than 11.  Probably should quit by 1.

Hopefully, the publicity train keeps rolling.  If Mr. Premeaux is successful in his initial fund-raising, the boat should be back in the news by late Sept.

My main concern with sand blasting is that we inspect every little component on the exterior to see if it can handle the blasting media or if it should be protected and later stripped by other means.

Next BATFISH work day is Saturday, March 6th, 2010.

It's been about 4 months since our last deck work day...so please, if you can make it, please set aside this day to come out and help us get a big chunk of the deck taken care of.

So...who wants to come out?  Maybe Rick will buy lunch for us!

Please RSVP and let me know.

Our last work day was before Thanksgiving.  I've tried to schedule some days but weather has cancelled a few, lack of bodies/holidays has cancelled a few, previously scheduled events has cancelled one.

We look to be good to go for March 6th (unless the weather cancels).  However, I'm coming and will do something inside if I have to.

Lord knows there's plenty to do on both sides of the hull.  

I ran an idea by Rick about maybe putting a small, electric furnace in the lower aft battery well.  There is an old ventilation tube that sticks up through the floor in the port, forward corner of the crew's berthing area - used to blow area down into the battery well.  Just blow the air up through the tube and then have the blower recirculate the warm air through the boat.  The thermostat in the galley just needs to be wired to the furnace.  The real trick is increasing power to both the boat and the utility pole behind the museum.
