April 13, 2014
Progress on the BONNY BRIDE has slowed a bit because of the looming sailing date of the CHARLES W. MORGAN. Our boss says that all ships are built in the last month! So it seems. That vessel is a beehive of activity with auxiliary engines for emergency pumping and firefighting, a genset for electricity, heads and holding tanks—the list goes n. The rig is being assembled and the outboard joinery being completed. It’s no surprise that we are all working overtime. It’s too bad we couldn’t voyage to the South Seas afterwards!
