Out on the plaza, preparations for Wintertime at the Maritime are underway, and I’ve heard rumors floating around about building some specialized equipment for ice bowling. ┬áIn the woodshop, Team Carpentry has been making blanks to replace some of the pinrails on the port side of the ship. We’re also finishing up the last pieces of edge planking for the foredeck, which means that soon we’ll be able to start putting in the new deck planking, and it won’t be quite so easy to accidentally drop pencils (and chisels, and rulers, and fasteners, and drill bits. . .) into the forepeak.

After work, though, Team Carpentry scrounged up a belated Valentine’s Day present for the rig shop crew. They had a chair that needed some repair work, and we had a can of pink spray paint. It turned out about like you’d expect.

Happy (belated) Valentine’s Day to you, too. We’ll see you down at the museum tomorrow night for Wintertime at the Maritime! Bundle up, and bring your funkiest hat.
