Summary of shipboard & offsite work for the week ending November 6, 2011

Saturday, November 5

Torsk Crew on board: Chief Bill, Chief Mike, Big Al, Dave, Cathy, John, Larry S, Tim, Nat, Amada L, Jaime, Amada, Corey and three Sea Cadets.

Big Al re-lamped the boat and assisted with mounting the starboard name board.

Chief Bill and Chief Mike worked on the 1MC amp. They finished testing the capacitors and resistors in the amp and replaced a large number of the resistors. A couple of the resistors need to be ordered, which Mike will do this week. The next step is to megger the high voltage windings of the transformer to see if it is any good. With some luck, we’ll be able to wrap this and get the 1MC working.

Dave finished prepping the FTR MK25 Navol monitor rack for painting. Traced and rang out the power feed to the monitor. Installed the starboard Name Board with assistance from Corey and Big Al

Nat and his wife Amanda began the day by applying a coat of paint to the Fwd FC panel and one of the many service panel covers from the conn. Both will need one more coat which he will apply next Saturday. Also removed the aft FC panel and disassembled it and began to strip old paint off of it.

John and Ski repaired the Growler in the Maneuvering Room. John did some trouble shooting on several other SP phones, and screwed down some loose decking topside.

Corey and his sea cadets shined bright work in the FER

Tim cleaned and polished in the Engine Rooms.

Cathy did housekeeping.

Amanda cleaned the paint off the brass cover of a junction box in FERUL and cleaned the paint off the covers on a DC receptacle panel in FERUL, and replaced the fastening chain for the covers.

Jaime sorted fuses for Dave.

Chief Mike, Dave and Earl met with the SeaBees to discuss the deck project.
