‘Sunbeam V’ Update – Pilothouse Nearing Completion

BELFAST, ME — Earlier this month, on a video-conference with Mission Administrators, Program Directors, Program Managers, and others, Sunbeam V Captain Mike Johnson said he is pleased with the way in which the Sunbeam pilothouse — his office on the water — is coming together.

The first photo of the pilothouse during the Sunbeam refit showed everything removed: computers, windows, seats, counters leaving dark areas of surface rust to be sanded and painted.

Mike says these current pilothouse photos don’t do justice to the “nearing completion” feeling he has when standing in the pilothouse. That feeling will be better conveyed in photos when with just the wood and window trim in place.

We look forward to those next photos.
