It was a very pleasant day as nine Chapter volunteers showed up as scheduled at the Chesapeake Lightship in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. There was no snow in sight and temperatures made it into the 60s, though we hear they are calling for some snow yet again next week. Volunteers tackled a number of different chores. We completed the painting of the damage control locker topside, the painting of the upper engine room fidley, one of the exhibit room display cabinets was opened and cleaned, the pads on the boat davits were repaired, some of the wiring brackets were scraped and painted, threads were chased and brackets removed for cleaning and repair. Finally the filters for the air conditioning units were cleaned and installed. Hopefully the weather will soon demand their use! All in all a fair amount of work was accomplished.
