To achieve that, we are building a purpose-designed rescue vessel that can carry food, water and medical supplies and doctors.
Thank you all so much for helping out over last weekend! We'll be doing the same again this weekend if you haven't got anything better to do... Tomorrow we receive the drive couplings for our fantastic diesel-electric propulsion system, so we'll be running cables to the drive motors and doing some carpentry to make a bulkhead and box in the components, as well as prep the propeller shaft struts with angle-grinders ready for the bottom paint - the final run to launching!
- Those of you who would love to learn to weld will get a chance - we'll use the MIG welder to build a simple angle-iron frame in the midships cabin for the shower base.
- We'll paint the final coat on the topsides of the boat all the way round. That will leave us free to commence the painting of the underwater steel.
As usual, we'll have drinkies and food after the work session!
SIGN UP HERE IF YOU'RE LOCAL AND WOULD LIKE TO HELP!! We are working on the boat 7 days per week, just call Captain Ray on 408-256-1290 to make sure someone's at the boat if you're coming.
