Comparing Maintenance Barge to our Maintenance Shop


As we work with so many different tools, supplies, and parts, our shop can grow noticeably cluttered and messy. This disorganization is very problematic for people in search for certain equipment. We regularly dedicate maintenance days at Waterfront Club for cleaning and organizing. However, staff and active students are always on the look for new ideas to improve our system. As a way to brainstorm, we went to the Seaport. Malcolm took us on board their maintenance barge and gave us a tour, which allowed us to find ideas and take pictures to apply back at home on Governors Island at the Mast Center. The comparison of the shops allowed us to work off ideas and think of new set-ups that would allow us to be better organized.
