Documenting Delaware's Pilot House

Apprentice for a Day participants did not let a dreary wet weekend in February spoil the fun of documenting in detail Delaware’s Pilot house. We first started with hand drawings and measuring in teams of two, luckily for us we had an even number of participants. Once we were shaking with cold it was time to retreat indoors to take stock of what measurements we had and which we were missing.

This is not one of the more glamorous and exciting tasks however it is an extremely important one. One we will be revisiting before the pilot house is removed from campus thus ensuring we have all the information we will need. The more documentation and closer attention we pay now the better off we will be in a year and a half when it is actually time to reconstruct the house.

I’d like to thank my great crew for their enthusiasm and due diligence, it’s always an honor and a pleasure!
