Tugboat End Result

lcmm Museum

The Churchill is fixed! Erick, Andy, Kerry and Art put in a wrenching frenzy and got it all back together with the machining assistance of Bob Bailey in the Canal Corp’s Waterford machine shop.  Thanks to everyone involved in this process!  We’re leaving early tomorrow morning and hoping to make it to the top of the Waterford Flight before the flooding begins.  Wish us luck!
