More progress on the pump system this week.
On Tuesday, I got out of work early. I travelled into town, ate lunch, and then went down to the harbor to check on the ship.
I found two ladies looking at the ship from the gate area. I had a nice chat with them and gave them a quick tour.
Paul was on board working to get more of the PVC set up for the emergency discharge line (which, hopefully, will never be used). After the ladies left, I did what I could to help him. Trying to do stuff like this in office attire is no fun.
Yesterday (Saturday), we did more work on the emergency discharge line. It involved going down into one of the tanks. Shhhhhh! Fortunately, the set-up drill was a familiar one, having been into the tanks myself.

(Yes, the deck needs a good cleaning. It’s on my list.)

After we were done for the day, I did my usual stroll around Aloha Tower.

I went to the Aloha Tower sundry store to get something to drink. Most of the remaining shops are being pushed out by the HPU dorm project. I asked the lady behind the counter about their status. Unfortunately, she said that they had to leave too. That makes me unhappy.
She did say that there are plans for a merchant area, so they may be back. I hope so.
