Marco Polo Project Gallery

    Here are the latest photos sent to us from Bob Coes, Project Manager taken on June 21 - 23 and June 28/06 .
   Be sure to check back often in the coming months, we hope to have lots to show.

June 21 - 23 /2006
Just click on the pics for larger view.

   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.

   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.
