09.11.09 We had a good shift last night, thanks to Stan, Dan, Blaine, Shannon and the usual suspects. José and family stopped by to show support. Thanks to Mike (F.D.Lake) for his rigging insight. Hopefully, we have a mode of transport to the river. Big push …tonight with the rest of the foam. head and body should be laid out. and paint on the tails.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Large Group

09.08.09 After 3 hard days in the shop downtown we have the three tail sections pretty well shaped up and ready for the protective coating and paint. The frame for the body is laid out and will come together on Tuesday and more foam is on the way from Harbor Foam. It was a very productive holiday weekend for us with the only interruption being three trips to the depot and the fist-o’-cuffs between the painters across the street….and that cherry picker is still stuck! Good luck John Patrick.
