Realistically? No.

The plan is to move the boiler to "Sheepscot Mills" for completion. It would be possible if it was worked on every weekend, but Boothbay/ Alna is a long distance from Portland and points south.

Only 17 Fundraising Calendars Left!

To make purchases easier, I've listed them on eBay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Casco-Bay-Steam-2017-Calendar-/222374075810?hash=item33c6871da2%3Ag%3AS-QAAOSw241YdWza&_trkparms=pageci%253Aa5a01b62-d78e-11e6-88f7-74dbd180e334%257Cparentrq%253A8ac440a31590a2a203326dc6ffc3af17%257Ciid%253A1&redirect=mobile

I invested my savings into these Calendars, so each purchase is very much appreciated.

Thanks!

With January coming to a close, Calendars are now only $15, and 25% of profits from the remaining Calendars will go to the #7 fund!:

Progress update on #7 for those that don't follow the facebook page.

3 side sheets are done with threaded stays and the flexi-stays are 95% done. Half of the mud ring rivets went in today.

All that's left with the boiler itself is the throat sheet stays, the welded stays, the other half of the mud ring rivets, and welding on the steam dome collar. Once that all is done we can put tubes in and hydro the work.

Link to video of riveting from today.
