The Unofficial Report for January 16, 2016

The Unofficial Report for January 16, 2016 (11616)

18 Volunteers went to the boat today. The damage caused by the vandals was probably the reason for the big turnout.

Fortunately, the damage was not as extensive as we anticipated. It appears someone failed to lock up the boat and a group of teenagers got in and decided to break through some of the Plexiglas Panels to get such treasures as an old double edge razor and a set of keys that have no locks.

Chuck managed to repair the damage to the bunk display and pea coat locker.

Chief Mike, Frank, Cory and Cathy got the radio room door functioning.

Kevin with some difficulty managed to cut some old plex for a temporary fix for the ATR head.

GE polished the brass & copper in the engine rooms.

Many, many other tasks were accomplished by the hard working volunteers.

Despite the problems Rob Howard, working mostly by himself, has the boat in excellent condition.

The only damage noted in the engine rooms was a missing air box thermometer. The door to the yeoman’s shack needs a screw at the top. The vandals tried to remove a copper pipe by the side of the sinks but Bruce managed to get it back in place. The vandals also destroyed the donation box and made off with the contents.

Ski once again provided his tasty apple fritters. Water bearers Frank and Dave thoughtfully brought what was needed to make coffee. ET stood watch on the brew pot.

It was great to get together again with mates not seen as often.

The crew did an amazing job today getting all the damage from the break in repaired. BZ to everyone who helped out! I know Rob appreciated the help getting things straightened out even if no one else at HSIB may. I for one still believe this is the best submarine crew out there and a group of volunteers way, way beyond compare! Nice job, crew.
