Those were great times ED. I was on the MQ in her early days the year after she was built. I can honestly say I have covered virtually every inch of that boat, been in every room at least once, been in all the closets, cubby holes and even walked underneath the hull. My first year on the boat I stayed on for layup as a watchman while she was Drydocked at Todd Shipyard. I think the following year I stayed as a head deckhand, and a few years as mate. One year I worked layup on the MQ in Todd shipyard as mate for about a month then DQ in Boland Marine for another month or so. Worked the entire layup.
