The Vancouver Maritime Museum is reopening for visitors after nearly 3 months of closure to limit the spread of COVID-19. Please visit their website to see their current exhibits and hours, and for full details of their health and safety procedures. Good to see them back in action, in addition to their Virtual VMM offerings!
When it rains, we put up the tent on the dock, and keep working!
It was another good day at the dock, with work continuing on the Auk in the shed, and Enke on the dock. Enke’s interior has been cleaned and scraped, a coat of varnish on all the brightwork, the mast has had a split filled with epoxy and varnish started. She’ll be back in the water soon! The mast needed a new sheave on top for the halyard, so Arnt used our great old drill press (thanks Kristyn!) as a lathe, using a rasp to shape the sheave.
