How will you guys clean up the extra black goo? Sikaflex, pitch, whatever it is.

With the Visitor Center closed due to COVID-19, all you can see is the work on the wharf going on in the Kennebec. We had some problems setting the supports for the MFS wharf in the Kennebec, but we have declared victory and we are now ready for the spring. Of course we still need to build the floats for the wharf, and acquire the ramp.

You can keep track of the progress of Virginia on the MFS website: mfship.org/status .
