10 September 2022
After a quick trip in which a lock and 6 bridges opened for us, we had the current with us on the North Sea and were we almost got stuck in the mud in the Van Harinxma Canal, we are now at Talsma Shipyard in Franeker. The days after arrival we lifted the booms and gaffs off, and on Friday also the masts. Always a bit nerve wrecking, but they are safe in the shed, ready to be worked on and inspected.
We will process and clean up after all this over the weekend. On Tuesday the ship will go in the dry dock. Meanwhile a lot of work is being done to prepare for the replacement of the last part of the hull. We can now see the tanks underneath the floor and in some places, we can even see the hull already. Greetings Jan
