Welcome back everyone! Sorry about the lack of posts recently, the Fourth of July is an extremely busy time for the Museum as well as the town of Bristol as a whole. I would like to begin by introducing myself. My name is Aaron Towers, and I am interning at the Museum for the summer. I am working on the RELIANCE project, and will be updating you with the progress of the project as well as any information I feel should be forwarded to you.
For the past couple weeks, we have been working in Building 28 to show visitors the true size of RELIANCE compared to our 1/6th scale model. It began when we constructed a 14-inch diameter section cut out to show the actual size of the bowsprit used on RELIANCE. This section represents a piece of RELIANCE’s 41-foot bowsprit. We have also been working on a few more ideas to display the sheer size of RELIANCE in comparison to our model. Keep checking in to see what we do next!
