Bending the Cover on der PeLiKan

Six youth from Sea Scout Ship 7916 climbed aboard the cradled der PeLiKan to apply the winter cover. With merely a list of color codes for the hoops, and a couple of phone calls between the Skipper of our Ship and the Commodore of Friends of Sea Scouts Maryland, our unit did a great job, earning 2 free weekends aboard this training vessel! Afterward, we went to Row B to visit "Amanda Grace," our Ship's first boat, donated by a former Sea Scout. The hoops and tarps we set up on der PeLiKan are intended to keep snow off the topside, as it can damage the vessel, and it snowed the following week, so our work was just in time.
