Rumseian Experiment travels to Baltimore May 18

The Experiment will be sitting at Pier 13 in Baltimore’s National  Maritime Day celebration on May 18th, 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  There will be a number of other boats- even model ones. We’ll be sitting across the dock from the Savannah.  It’s another  steamboat, but  of a somewhat improved design, that uses a nuclear reactor to raise steam. Stop by and say hello!
