26 Sep Stuff
26 September 2017
It is amazing to see how much stuff is being loaded off the ship. Sails, blocks, yards, rope, gaffs, booms etc. Truck after truck we carry stuff off and the ship is visibly higher in the water now.
Tomorrow is the big day. Then we will be lifting the masts off the ship. The masts are almost free. Two big cranes from the company Mammoet will gently lift them from the ship and put them on the quay for maintenance.
Meanwhile there have been a lot of preparations for the new rigging. Ff. de Groot from Stavoren has delivered great work and we are now finalizing the work on the new rigging.
We will be working on this for the coming weeks and we will be sanding and varnishing the masts.
