    I will forward a list of wants & needs to all those sign up as the event grows closer & we finalize the plans. Lots of ideas being proposed, but the coffers are empty so save your scrap building materials & plan on plenty of splinter removal & Pirate Engineering.

    I have acquired a old gas grill. We now need a couple of bags of charcoal (I think I have some grates that will work) ....Hot dogs & buns or burgers if you can spare the cash....what ever you have...we Pirates are starving ..HAR! If you can only stay for one hour that is OK...plenty to do! Wispa is in charge of Commissary!

    Ahoy, maties!
    I've done a recon o' th' ship fer what needs ta be done.
    Thar be a LOT of removal and replacement o' parts.
    I'll not go into details 'ere, but rest assured, there be enough work fer all!
    Anyone who has the following tools, please bring with; they'll be put to good use.
    Saws: Circular, Jig/scroll, Sawzall, Hacksaw
    Drills: With assorted bits, including paddle bits.
    Sanders (with spare pads/belts): Belt, Disc, Mouse
    Hand tools such as Pliers, hammers, screwdrivers, prybars, etc.
    Paint Brushes en masse will be needed as well.
    If'n anyone has a nailgun w/nails, it can be put to use.
    Bring screws, nails, anything ye have. I be sure we can use it.

    There be a lot of worn wood we'll be removing, so bring gloves! Splinters will be avoided this way.

    It'll be a hot day, so bring drinks. I plan to bring a flat of water. If e'eryone does, we'll have plenty to go around, and we'll not have any heat stroke.
