REMARKS: We stayed in Portland one extra day, being today, in order to get accomplished a long list of tasks. By staying tied to the dock and focusing on what had to get done we have been able to steadily cross items off the list…without adding anything already done and then slashing a line through it for some instant gratification. Our new trainees also benefited as we have been able to give them some focused attention during orientations, lessons and adapting themselves into ship life. As much as we all love to be out on the water, once in a while it pays to take a breather and allow everything to settle.
SHIP’S WORK: Linseed oil on Monomoy and Sea Never Dry masts; slushed the rigs on Monomoy and Sea Never Dry; worked on remounting the outbound engine; rove off yard tackle; replaced sea painter on Monomoy; build tiller for small boat engine; replaced lanyard for life ring light; replaced lights, whistles and retro reflection tape on float coats.
