The refit crew had some wood brought in last month which was treated and will be used in the cargo hold as decking. 

The masts & spars have been sanded and varnished and the carpenter is finishing off the repairs.

The new refit crew arrived, who are in charge of the rigging, so all the shrouds, wires, stays, blocks and lines are serviced and repaired where necessary.

Of course there are jobs in between! From sanding the lee-boards, to organising the engine room and de-rusting the steel plates on board…

Hardtack and Lobscouse

This is going to be the heart of the ship. The place where “hardtack”- rock-hard, long-lasting salty biscuits – will be baked, alongside “Lobscouse”, a traditional sailor’s meal with meat, potatoes and onions and a diverse range of other dishes.

The Tukker Wall

The Tukker Wall

5.5 metres long, 2 metres high and 45 cm thick with pieces of steel integrated here and there. Plus, I learned that concrete continues to harden as it ages, and this wall had been in the ship for quite some time.
