Cramer MMP is wrapping up with beautiful fall colors all over Belfast. Cooler weather, bright leaves, and pumpkin decorations all over town make it clear that the summer is finally over, and Cramer is getting ready to sail south!

Greetings from Belfast! The Cramer is currently floating alongside a dock here at the shipyard, and we are all SO excited. Here’s a quick recap of everything that had to happen to get to this point!

Wrap-up from Yard in American Samoa

RCS Yard Crew

RCS Yard 2017

Well, the RCS blog has been hard to keep up with, with all of this hard work! We’ve been attacking all sorts of projects here and there, and just about everywhere. We’ve travelled all the way up the masts, to loosen the bottle screws in order to re-tension the stays. We’ve tarred the highest stays. And we’ve worked down to the depths, finishing stowing the food and lashing it in dry stores, getting everything sail-ready. And even to under the bowsprit, climbing and tarring the bobstay.

Container Days!!!

RCS Yard Crew

Seamans Yard 2017

Yard started off with a bang! No, don’t worry, there were no collisions.

There was only the colliding of different pupils paths, as some crew members of the previous PIPA trip departed, and new crew ready for yard, arrived. After a quick orientation, things started to move around. And this includes people, food, random stuff, any type of stuff really, for there was word of a container arriving soon.

The Return of the Main Engine

Laura Rea, Procurement Officer, Social Media and Public Outreach Officer

Cramer Yard 2017

It’s getting down to the final push here in Cramer MMP! More and more SEA Crew have been flooding into the Crosby house, giving us numbers upwards of thirty to help put the ship back together.

The deck team has been - you guessed it - painting! But things are getting exciting, because more and more, those paint coats have been of top coat! The spreaders on the foremast are currently getting a fresh layer of black top coat, and the entire mast has been sanded and is now ready to paint. The rigging team continues their block party, although Ryan and Foretek have emphatically informed me that it is definitely not a “party”.

Cramer the Jigsaw Puzzle

Laura Rea, Procurement Officer, Social Media and Public Outreach Officer

Cramer Yard 2017

MMP has continued to be a flurry of reassembly. Everywhere, bits and pieces of the boat are coming together!

Deck is still split into the Rigging team, the Paint Prep team, and the Paint team this week. The Rigging team is pleased to welcome Foretek to Front Street, only to banish her out to the yards, which are being stored away from the rest of the ship. While Foretek preps the yards, the rest of the rigging team has finished re-serving the wire, and has moved on to - you guessed it - more blocks!

SEASCape 2017 Summer Olympics

Tasha Greenwood, RA, C House

SEA Semester

Today dawned bright and sunny; a perfect ending to the week. We started the day with a time-honored SEA tradition - FIELD DAY. In this case, Field Day means a Deep Clean of all the cottages, sweeping, swiffering, and scrubbing our homes from top to bottom. At the same time, students had their final meetings with program faculty. Once the houses were looking spiffy clean, we broke for lunch. Post-lunch, we had the graduation ceremony, where every student received their SEA pin.
