Captain’s Report: If Weather Holds, ‘Sunbeam V’ Should Relaunch Oct. 12

Sunbeam V Captain Michael Johnson sent these photos and update on the morning of September 29, 2017.

STONINGTON, ME — This is about the mid-way point for Sunbeam V dry dock. Take a look at the photos. The first photo shows one of several areas of rust under the flooring being repaired. The second is the replacement of the foggy pilot house window. The third is a random exterior shot. The fourth photo is the old leaking grey water tank being replaced. The fifth is Sunbeam V engineer Storey King’s dryer duct cleaning project — which was more extensive than expected. The final photo is the dismantled Sunbeam V hallway where the grey water tank is located.

Everything is going reasonably well with the exception of more extensive rust found on the hull under the grey water tank. That rust is being assessed/addressed early next week.

As long as the weather holds, we should launch as scheduled on October 12th.
