December, 2004  Maranee's engines get the royal treatment that finally completes their rebuild of 1998. A tent is constructed in Maranee's interior and the masks come on in order to apply a fresh coating of blue engine paint to the 64 year-old mills. In the process, the original brass engine ID plates are uncovered and shined up, revealing the original engine numbers present on Maranee's Boat Equipment Record of 1940.

October 4, 2004  Maranee gets wired - that is to say that she is in the process of a complete overhaul of her electrical system. New breaker panels, hundreds of feet of wiring and a list of more improvements is in progress. Keep an eye out here for further updates on Maranee's electrical projects.
