My time has been at extreme premium the last few days... apologies.
The ship is still in Ft. Madison. The crew has gotten some much needed rest, but they are doing a great deal of work as well. Everything that needs to be off loaded when they arrive at Evansville is organized and ready to do so. They are also working - chipping and painting, cleaning and doing some mechanical maintenance. Time is not being wasted! Captain, Ad and Bruce are directing the Ship's compliment to make good use of their time as they wait for the river level to drop. Everyone is well.
at the ship today.... the crew dined on spare ribs, potato salad and baked beans and enjoyed every mouthful! I understand that no one can make spare ribs as tasty as Jim Voelker's!!!
The crew is doing a lot of chipping and painting and working on maintenance projects.
They're anxious to get back to Evansville, but must wait on the river...
Everyone is doing well. They're enjoying themselves and getting a lot done but are eager to sail.
