Re: Long Time

We are on the boat most Saturdays, but the number of active volunteers has decreased. The number of volunteers on board will usually be 3 - 5 and we leave by 1pm. No large projects are ongoing.

Re: USS Ling

The museum has agreed to vacate the property by August 14th, but they have no place to go. The Ling is not going anywhere.

Re: USS Ling

I visited the Ling on Thursday (August 24, 2017). The Navy has removed most of the artifacts from the grounds and the Ling continues to deteriorate.
