| The first three photos describe the work completed
June 21 - 23/06. They show the setup of 15 pairs of frames (port and starboard)
at the centre of the ship. The first photo with one of our volunteers, Brad
Matthews standing on a frame member, gives a good indication of the size and
area below the main deck. The cross piece over his head is a temporary support.
The actual deck beam, when installed, will be located closer to the top of the
frames. Photo 2 is similar, again looking aft with myself standing near the
port side. Photo 3 is a shot from the stern area looking forward.
|June 28 /2006
| Photo 4 shows several more frames added to the
stern area. Notice that the height of the frames are higher in that area. Photo
5 is a stern shot giving a good description of the shape of the frames curving
in closer to the to the centre line as they approach the stern. Photo 6, also a
stern shot shows the ship stretching out. A poster for Bosch tools is displayed
on one of the temporary supports. They have been our power tool sponsor since
the start of the project. Photo 7 illustrates the contrast in the shape of the
frames both from the inside and outside. The last photo in this group is a shot
from the bow area looking aft. The ship is beginning to take on a three
dimensional shape for the first time in a very long time.
Also, I want to recognize Don MacGowan, Ken Sparks, and
Al Sweet, who have contributed to the setup stage over the last two weeks. With
their support as well as others I'm sure that we will continue to make similar
progress in the weeks to come.
