Dunbar School ~ Working on the Water

Working on the Water Program, 0900-1100

Dunbar Elementary School, New Bedford

The Dunbar School brought 26 students onboard for Working on the Water today. Following the program, the students went back to school, while crew resumed work on projects in progress. Right after lunch, we’ve arranged a visit to the Seaman’s Bethel, for new and ‘old’ crew alike to see that historic place and learn a bit of its history and legend.

Mate Liz has been plugging away at a backlog of chart corrections over the past three days; today deckhand Kristen is apprenticing to this project, learning and helping get the corrections completed. Other maintenance and repair projects are underway around the ship. Yesterday we inventoried and made sure we had enough paper plates and utensils onboard for the 65-person troop of Boy Scouts coming onboard this weekend. Though they are camping ashore overnight, technically it will be our last overnight sail of the season.
