Back on April 30th I wrote about installing the Inflatable Buoyant Apparatuses on the Steamer Virginia V. Since then I was sent an image of her maiden voyage.
Other than the replacement of life boats with the Inflatable Buoyant Apparatuses and some different clothes, things haven’t changed. The Virginia V Foundation has done a wonderful job of maintaining this piece of history.
