I am assuming that is an AC unit running and not a bilge pump running?

The bilge is drying up most compartments are completely dry.

Thx Randy!! I had assumed something mechanical such as AC unit or Genset......I bought a new scanner so I will scan all my 305 photos from my time first meeting her and working on her. Restoration is a good thing but her journey back from an oyster dredge although long is just truly amazing. Crow Brothers were going to start cutting her up again and put her back to work. So glad that did not happen. They really did not want that to happen. She did through David off her back into the water once. Don't know if he ever told you folks that story.
I just light up each time I see this current pictures I do not mean to come off so gushy.
I really wish I could be there at the party in March

Congratulations and thank you for all the efforts of so many people. We walked the deck two years ago and look forward to another visit.
