Tuesday and Wednesday this week our crew is meeting at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath in order to disassemble a pavilion that they have gifted us, thanks to facilitation by Dave Allan (our bridge contractor).  Meet time is 830; park in their main lot by the road. Please seek me out and check in with me upon arrival.

Pavilion 30x80 wooden structure with metal roof on scissor trusses, slated to become event space at AC.

This is wonderful news as the structure we are receiving is in great shape and will serve multiple functions at Alna Center.  I'm volunteering to help build a BBQ pit alongside - anybody want to join me?

Terrific photos, Brendan.  Thanks for posting them!  Fred's reaction in the 3rd photo is the same as mine!
What–me worry?

Great pics.
Youz guyz waste NO time!
This is a Maine version of a western US pole barn.
Those trussed rafters are interesting.
Hope you can take 'em down and transport them as whole units.
The roof sheets, and the lumber in general, look in great shape.

Nice to see some of Bath Iron Works, where my ship USS Mansfield DD728 was built in 1945.

Boy, it didn’t take long to put that new forklift attachment to good use.

You certainly made short work of taking down the rafters.

You guys are better equipped than the men putting up the trusses in the development across the road.

In an episode of "Maine Cabin Builders" the pavilion was seen for about 3/10 of a second - just long enough to recognize
 where that is. Certainly not long enough to say "I know where that is."

Wow!  Tremendous effort there.  A job done very well.  Thanks for the photos, Brendan.

And thanks to Maine Maritime Museum and our volunteers and donors for this opportunity.

Nice job guys, I wish I could be up there to help out.  Is the plan to store the materials up at Alna Center?

That was my recent question, a lotta excellent wood. Why not bring it directly to Alna Center, out of everybody's way, right where it will be used?
