    Across the way is a former trash pile and is what was presumed to have shielded Rose from the brunt of Hurricane Gloria.





    One of the many who are now nameless. He always had zinc on his nose. Smart.



    Cannon work.



    More caulking.

    This is Kaye Williams. He is a very interesting man. There is a book about him that says he quit school about the sixth grade.

    But at one point he was asked to run for mayor of Bridgeport.

    He's the man responsible for saving "Rotten in Groton," Rose.



    This is Bill O'Brien. He was in charge of the canons.

    When my friend Pete asked me to make wormers, I became part of the cannon crew. They all needed work too.



    This is Richard Bailey. He had been Rose's captain in Newport and signed on again in Bridgeport.









    I'm going to stop for now.

    This is a story I like to tell. Later, we ended up in New York City for the anniversary of the opening of the Statue of Liberty.

    More later.

    More on Rose's rebuild.

    All the cannons needed a lot of work, especially the gun carriages.

    While I don't have a picture of any of the parts the trade school machine shop made, here is a picture of just three of the students and their teacher.

    There are actually a fair number of iron (steel) parts on a carriage and they all had to be remade. All I remember now is the hardware used to hold the cannon down on the carriage.

    This was the day they practiced for graduation.



    The carpentry shop made a bunch of things including the tables the guns were mounted on.




    When building this ship, 18th century designs were not going to go over well today. On the gun deck people today would not be happy crouching down almost on their knees. So Rose had about a seven foot height to walk around in. The outside of the ship had gun ports at the height you would expect to see them. Inside, to get the guns to the gun port height, the carpentry department made a bunch of tables for them to sit on.

    Installing the tables.



    We painted the gun tables on my shop's driveway and the driveway had black paint on it for years after that.

    This is much later on when the guns were aboard.



    Above on the second gun you can see one of the wormers I made.

    I polished up the ships bell and mounted it.

    Well before digital cameras, when film was expensive, I never took a picture of the bell.

    But when Rose was in Milwaukee on one of her cruises, a friend toured her and sent me this picture.

    This was the ship used in the filming of the movie Master and Commander. It was taken out to the west coast for the filming and still remains there as far as I know. Now a tourist attraction?
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    We got to shoot the cannons a few times.

    This was an event where we made a lot of noise. I can't even remember what the event was.





    Below, that's me on the right.

    This was 35 years ago and 35 pounds ago.

    I still have a lot of hair, but not that much.





    The guns above were smaller than the others on board and were easier to move around.

    They are cast iron and had no liners in the barrels.

    So, being in the gundrilling business, I drilled them out and lined them with a steel liner.

    In my shop, I subcontract to other machine shops to deep hole drill, or gundrill, their holes.

    Gundrilling is how you would drill a rifle barrel. Actually I don't have anything to do with guns. Right now most of what I work on is for tools used in orthopedic surgery. Bone drills and the like. They need tiny holes very deep.

    So with four cannons drilled out, I called an engineer at Raybestos, a local company at the time. I asked for a small supply of the "glue" they use to bond brake pads to the steel backing. They obliged and I "glued" the liners in.

    So, back to work.

    We had a goal. The statue of Liberty was almost fully restored and the opening celebration was set for the Fourth of July.

    And we were going!!!!

    Still a few minor details.



    The day before Rose was leaving for New York, I went down and climbed the rigging for the first time.

    looking down.

    This is not what I am good at.

    They day we left for New York was a beautiful and bright day.

    There was a large crowd that came to see us off.







    Rose was a long way off from being able to sail on her own. There were no engines and the rigging was not anywhere near ready to go. So a tug towed us to a mooring not too far off from the statue.



    We had a lot of escort boats that went along.



    We settled down for a beautiful trip down Long Island Sound.

    Below is my friend Pete who got me involved with the Rose project.

    I had lost track of Pete for a long time after Rose, but when I started to volunteer at the Seaport, I though he would love it too. After a search I finally found his address.

    I received a letter from his wife telling me that he had passed away six years earlier. I later heard it was Agent Orange that got him. I wonder if his name is on the wall in Washington. It should be.



    We still had work to do.

    The Throgs Neck Bridge is ahead.



    We cleared it with room to spare.







    Next up is the Whitestone bridge.

    Then the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge at Hells Gate.

    Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge crossing Roosevelt Island,
    Williamsburg Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, and last in line is the Brooklyn Bridge.

    We cleared all the bridges, but the Brooklyn Bridge was a small problem. It is too low for us to pass under. So, some of the rigging needed to be lowered.



    More later.

    Coming down the East River we needed to prepare for the passage under the Brooklyn Bridge. All of the other bridges are tall enough to pass under, but not the Brooklyn Bridge. Part of the mast needed to be lowered.

    Captain Bailey and another crew member are up top getting ready.



    Below, we had to raise the spar enough to pull the pin out so it could be lowered.



    Not everyone cared.



    I did this too and when I got home, it seems I was on the local news too. Cool.



    Getting closer.



    The Brooklyn Bridge.

    Just beyond is the South Street Seaport.



    But wait!

    What ship is that?

    The HMS Bounty, a mutinous ship and fair game for any royal navy warship.



    Prepare to fire!







    We had 150 pounds of powder on board so we were set for a battle.

    She got away.



    We had a mooring about a half mile north of the Statue of Liberty where we stayed for the weekend.

    It was getting dark and time for dinner. We had local news on board doing live reporting.



    The next morning there was a French warship anchored very near by. Funny, all weekend long we would hail her to say hello neighbor, but no one ever responded.

    Oh well, their loss.

    Then it was time for the celebration.

    The tall ships started parading in.





    This was my position for most of the day.



    The cannon crew would reload and we would fire a salute to every ship that went by.

    One of my projects was to build a panel to fire the cannons. We had a lot of cannons so a friend and I put this together.



    A local company that sold used helicopter parts gave me these 24 switches. Aircraft quality. To fire a cannon, you had to lift the toggle first. This helped prevent accidents. Or so we thought. More later.



    We used a very light gauge wire connected to a squib. The squib was centered in the charge of black powder and it was all wrapped in a wax paper tube. When the cannon was loaded, the charge was slid into the bore. When all was clear the wires were plugged into a receptacle mounted on the gun port. You can just see them on the gun ports below. All the receptacle wires ran back to the panel. On command they would be fired.



    Uh-oh, look who's back. Next time.



    Shamrock V



    A fly by, but one didn't work. Oh well.



    If you saw this at home, you probably got a better view of the whole event.

    I was told that a Harrier flew up to the statue, hovered, and bowed to Lady Liberty.

    This is not to say we missed very much.

    When President Regan came up on the USS Iowa, we fired a 21 gun salute. Apparently Nancy saw us and pointed at us. It was on one of the national TV stations covering the event. We had one copy of it and it was stolen just after we got back.

    More later.

    We had 150 pounds of black powder to play with so any chance we had, we fired off at least a couple of rounds.

    Each time the gun crew had to reload by pulling the guns back in.



    You can see the wire going down the barrel and on the bulkhead where they plug in. It's the same plug that is on many stereos. It came from Radio Shack.

    We had a lot of fun. The day after the big event, the Circle Line boats all got a two gun salute. Time and time again, they came by closer and closer.

    BUT.....

    We had a bit of a problem.

    I had made up a small panel so a shot could be fired from up on deck. When too many people get involved without good training, an accident can happen, and it did, twice.

    A Circle Line boat was going by and Bill, our gun captain, was leaning over a loaded gun when the person with the switch in hand shot too soon. Bill was standing over the touch hole and got a face full of unburned black powder in his face.

    Fortunately, it missed his eyes. Pete picked up the slack for the second shot and when he attached the wires, the gun went off again. The guy with his hand on the trigger forgot to turn it off after the first mishap. Pete got it in his hand.

    Fortunately, the was no lasting damage for either man. We were very lucky.

    Here's Bill after he was looked at at a Bellevue Hospital. His young son spent hours picking out specks of powder.




    I went along to pick up Bill and Pete in the launch we used for the weekend. They went to Bellevue Hospital and we picked them up at the South Street Seaport. Seemed like the whole fleet was there.





    On the way back I got a look at Rose from a vantage I had not seen before.

    Here are other things and not in order.

    I climbed to the top to get some pictures.



    I found a Bridgeport fireman or policeman, I'm not sure which, reading and taking a well earned rest.



    He spent hours in the water with SCUBA searching for leaks. And there were a lot of them. In the head, you had to sit with your feet spread apart so as to not get wet.

    He was taking a few minutes off. When at work, the crew would find a leak in the bilge and talk to someone on deck who would relay the info to another diver in the water. Then that person would dive down to guide this man.

    We were never in any danger, but there were a whole lot of pumps on board just in case.

    The fireworks display by Grucci was spectacular. All run by computer, they show was synchronized so all the displays went of together. We could see them all the way up the Hudson to the George Washington Bridge and way up the East River. Then the Statue of Liberty also had a display.

    At the time, film was expensive and then it had to be developed. So I was careful. But I soon ran out.

    So I have no pictures of the blimp race that started at the George Washington Bridge and came down the Hudson to the Statue of Liberty where they turned and flew back. They were right on top of us. As I remember the Goodyear blimp was there as well as Fuji film. There were about six or seven of them.

    Another remembrance.

    The QE-2 was leaving New York. Our guys came up with a salute. We fired off four shots. I know they heard us for two reasons. After these Shots we fired it was the only time we ever heard and echo. It was when our noise bounced off QE-2's hull.

    Then our guys dipped our colors.

    It took about two minutes for them to respond. They dipped their colors and sounded four very long blasts on her horn.

    That felt good.

    Later that night as we headed home under tow up the East River I was talking to Captain Bailey. He told me that a benefactor for the rose lived in Manhattan. It was not too far from the East River. We had a brand new cell phone on board. It came in a suitcase. So he called this man at 2AM and told him we were going to fire a cannon and he should listen for it.

    Boom!!!

    We were just passing Roosevelt Island and people were rolling out of their apartments to see what had just happened. Imagine waking to cannon fire at 2AM and seeing an 18th century warship passing by. Cops on there beats waved their flashlights like it happened all the time.

    What a hoot.

    So Captain Bailey called the man back and said, "Did you hear us?"

    "Oh yes, and so did everyone else!"

    Turns out he lived near the Hudson River, not the East River. The noise echoed all the way down the canyons of New York, across all of Manhattan.

    Time for bed.

    I woke later to see the Throgs Neck Bridge as we passed under it. Then back to sleep.

    It was a very memorable weekend.

    The next morning as we made our way back home to Black Rock Harbor and Captain's Cove Seaport we started firing again.







    Done. Great time had by all.

    Here is the gun crew.

    Pete is still nursing his hand after the mishap. I'm standing next to him.



    The parting shot.



    A Few months later Rose was towed to a yard in Massachusetts where her bottom was cleaned up and caulked.



    So, that's my previous life on a grand sailing adventure.

    Now that I have had both Covid vaccinations I'm about ready to go back to Mystic Seaport. Wayne is almost ready too.

    Be back here later, but not too late, I hope.

    Meanwhile, stay safe.

    I'm back!!!

    I had both my shots three weeks ago.

    I walked into the paint shop and found some change, and one thing that had not changed.



    The little hydroplane (Is that the correct name for it?) has been in the shop for months. The top sides are getting multiple coats varnish and then it will get a coat of paint. Original finish is a bit of a gray area. So the varnish is easily restored if the paint needs to be removed. Painted bare wood would be troublesome is a varnished finish is desired at a future time.

    There are three other small boats. The two above. and this one.







    I met Doug, the paint shop foreman and we walked down to the L A Dunton.

    He asked me to clean the deck off of paint chips and dirt.



    The painted surface is bad and falling apart. My job was to vacuum it up.

    Wayne was away for the day so it was me, alone on deck. I took this selfie.




    Dunton is getting tired. She is slated for a full restoration soon.

    Soon?

    Next year? Two years? We wait.

    But things are going on. There have been grants to help the project get started. One grant covered some of the wood needed.

    Around the yard there are piles of wood that are identified.





    There is no identification on this one. There are a lot of knees in this.





    I took a look in the DuPont Restoration Barn to see how the New Haven Sharpie was coming along.

    There are paying customers out in the yard to take care of, so Sharpie appears to be on hold.

    At this point it's hard to tell that there is a boat there.

    The long red board is the chine. In the center is the keel with dozens of plugs filling old holes.



    Star is behind in the corner.

    Something more that a touch up must be in store for Star.

    https://www.mysticseaport.org/explor...-lobster-boat/



    Nothing obvious look bad, but she's not in the barn for bottom paint. So, we'll see.



    Outside, Shenandoah is still here.

    https://vineyardgazette.com/news/202...r-new-captains

    The stern has been rebuilt along with some new planking and frames.







    Getting set for the next project arriving soon.

    Last week the crew was getting ready for a new boat on the lift.

    Here's what arrived.



    Roseway.

    All you need to know, almost.

    https://worldoceanschool.org/get-on-board/about-roseway

    One thing not mentioned in the link above is that one of our paint crew worked on Roseway 43 years ago as a crewman.

    It was an ugly day weather-wise so I didn't get any more info. She has only one plank removed on her starboard side. There is caulking going on, but from the ground I don't see too much else.



    Something looks amiss here. It could just be some bad caulking.



    Here's the missing plank.



    Next door on Shenandoah work continues.

    In the paint shop Walt is caulking.





    Outside in the cold rainy weather (under cover), Anne and I painted these stands. They will have information on them about what ever they are in front of. The older versions are a very light weight with wooden cross bases and they blew over all the time.

    The concrete base should help in that regard.






    The last job for us today was to start removing the remnants of barnacles from Star's hull. This is real grunt work. As I scraped I had to keep telling myself, "I do this for fun."



    I got about a third of the port side done before I gave up on it. Next week is another week. My idleness during Covid has taken away my stamina. Couldn't be that I'm getting older.

    Nate continues on with the Palmer engine.

    The last time I saw him several weeks ago, he was still boiling the cylinder and had not yet welded on a new water jacket patch.

    Now it's all back together and the fine tuning is going on.

    Here, he's rebuilding the oil pump.



    Even a close look does not show a patch. Nate is becoming very good at welding on these water jacket patches.





    Now he's working on another engine.

    He's desalting the block. I Have no info on it yet.

    But here's the new rainwater source I put together a few weeks ago.

    I picked up the 330 gallon cube locally and installed it a few weeks ago. Rainwater off the roof drains into the tank. It's not pure, but it's good enough.



    To make it better, he runs in through a couple of filters.



    From here it goes to the tub where he boils it and the new block. More on this new engine later.

    The seaport keeps a tally of volunteer hours and one way it can be done is to sign in on a time sheet.




    That taken care of, Nate and I went out separate ways.

    Anne and I continued cleaning the bottom of Star's hull.



    This is ugly work and I can only give it an hour at a time. I am completely covered in dust when done.

    Here is before.



    And after.







    The tyvek suit does nothing for ones figure. She has a coat on underneath. It was a cool day and the wind didn't help.

    Tom is building benches for the toy boat exhibit where your child can build a toy boat. Bits of wood, an imagination, and hot glue can build some amazing toy boats.

    But this is just a bench.







    https://www.mysticseaport.org/news/s...y-boat-armada/


    One of the two boats in the yard is Roseway.

    https://worldoceanschool.org/ships-l...hipyard-update

    Their crew is on hand to do a lot of the work.





    When Sherman Zwicker was in the yard, The prop was removed and the shaft log sealed. The prop is going to be cleaned up and put on display.

    More dirty work.

    You can see where Anne started on one blade. This is a far as this project went today.



    More later?

    Our family is growing. Two ducks have been hanging around the seaport for years. This is the first time I've seen them nesting. I know nothing about ducks and their habits but I'm guessing she's sitting on her eggs. We'll see.





    One of my jobs for the day was to clean up the Sherman Zwicker prop. Why clean it? No one knows.

    Wayne and I were supposed to do this together, but he had another Red Cross training session to work on so this one was on me.



    Strike one, a wire wheel wasn't doing well on getting through the corrosion.

    Strike two, it was raining lightly on and off. Then it rained harder.

    I quit.

    Next week is another time to try.


    I was going to call it a day when I heard Mamie was about to be launched.

    Looking at Mamie I figured she was built in the 1940's or even earlier.

    Nope. 2005






    She is listed on the seaport website in two places. The first location is for boats that are for sale.

    There's not too much information on her.

    This next site tells how you can charter her.

    But before that she needs to get wet.

    As the water rose, she needed to clear the trailer fenders and the winch. So four lines kept her in place.



    But as luck would have it, the engine wouldn't start.

    To the rescue.



    If it needs a tow, a tow can be provided.

    But as luck would have it, after the tow arrives, the engine started.



    It turns out she has a diesel and it was a cold day.

    Back on the lift dock, the trailer needed to be rinsed off. That's Anne's job.





    So how many people did it take to launch this small boat?

    3 on the boat
    4 on the lines
    2 on the tow boat
    1 running the lift dock
    1 to wash down the trailer and lift
    --
    11 people plus a few in reserve if needed.

    Boating isn't cheap.

    Wayne and I had a full day. All on one small project.

    This prop will be on display somewhere on campus and we had to clean it.



    It would have been an easier job if we knew more about the end use. Inside as a display piece, it needed to be somewhat polished. Out side would need a less refined finish. But no one knew where it was going for sure, so polished was our goal.



    A long way to go from here.



    Then we found out it was just going outside on the grounds somewhere.

    OK, wire wheel the barnacles off and it's good to go.



    Two things in the machine shop.

    Scot is repairing the bearings on Roseway's winch. It was originally a steel shaft turning on steel bearings. The bores were very badly worn.

    So Scot is boring out the IDs and lining them with bronze.



    A little out of focus.



    This one was so worn, all he had to do was "glue" in a liner.

    The other project was building a new rudder for the older wooden Garvey, Maynard Bray.

    The original and the new.









    Here iswhere it's going.



    Maynard Bray, a garvey push boat designed and built by Anselís father, Willets Ansel, 40 years ago.

    Roseway is supposed to be launched on Monday.

    Seems like a lot needs to be done.





    Walt is looking to see where caulking might still be needed.





    Shenandoah has a little more to be done.

    From Shenandoah's scaffolding i got a good look at Roseway's caulking on the starboard side.
