Summary of shipboard & offsite work for the week ending October 30, 2011

Saturday, October 29

Torsk Crew on board: Chief Mike, Big Al, Dave, Cathy, Frank, Larry S, Butch, Nat, Sam, Scott, Little Al, Jaime, 2/C Tyler LeDoux, 2/C Kyle Todd, 2/C Charlie Johnson, 4/C Arvind Stone, 4/C Teri Rutter, 4/C Matthew Deisher, 4/C Madison Buck

Big Al re-lamped the boat and Removed the corrosion from stern light socket and tested for operation and tested OK. Then he filled the O-ring grove with RTV for weather proofing. He also stripped the paint from stern light reflector and took it home for sand blasting.

Chief Mike went to work in Radio repairing the audio switchboard. Found two broken connections, a broken selector switch, and a shorted selector switch in the CV-591 circuit (which explains why we can’t get audio from the CV-591 SSB converter). With a very small Allen wrench he can fix all our remaining problems with the audio switchboard.

Chief Mike also helped get our Midshipmen started on their tasks. Tyler worked on the hatch into the Pump Room, and others worked on cleaning out the bottom of the 1MC cabinet, cleaning off the Navol Monitor indicator panel shelf in FTR, cleaning under the air manifold, and cleaning the after bulkhead in the FERLL. These Midshipmen worked their tails off and did some awesome work. They are a great bunch of future O-gangers.

Dave held an E-Div project planning meeting. He helped various folks get started on projects. Then Cathy and Dave finished two more snorkel valve indicator panels for Tim to reinstall.

Scott, Ski and Butch worked to get the 3MB engine control indicator system working in FER, AER and MAN - Mostly done. Will replace more bulbs when bulb order arrives and also plan to clean and adjust some of the switch contacts next time.

Frank rounded up the nuts and bolts for the deck hatch and started fancy work on the helm.

Nat repaired a light fixture in the conn and removed, disassembled, stripped, sanded and primed the fwd fire control panel.

Tim polished Brass & Copper in both engine rooms. He relocated stored valve handles from AER to lower AB, and relocated wrenches and sockets from AER to lower AB and replaced them with new sets. Then he reinstalled panel expertly restored by Cathy & Dave
Little Al re-lamped the boat and did housekeeping.
