The work continues with the preparation of refurbished safety rails on the promenade deck.
The stanchions are painted and in place as is at least most of the new hardwood top rail. The rail sections have been steamed and bent to shape on site and will give us a better looking and much safer barrier around the edge of the deck. Hull painting too is progressing, see photos, and completion of the work not far off. Note the blue tape masking the saloon window frames.
All we need then is the tug and a day when the weather and tide are right for the move. There is a tight limit on the swell height for towing (insurance requirement) and the tide must be high enough for our ship and the tug to cross the sandbars in the Medway.
