The volunteers are still hard at work to make the ship presentable and, more importantly, to get to a condition where we can hire the vessel out as a venue and get more income from it.
The deck lamps were installed as part of the electrical systems upgrade and the main deck in the forward saloon now looks too good to be true!
The deck has been caulked, sanded and sealed to meet hygiene requirements. Further coats of sealant may be needed. When the galley fittings are complete we'll be able to provide teas and snacks on board as an added attraction.
When the current work programme is finished we'll have a smarter visitor attraction, better visitor facilities and an ability to hire the saloons out between times. This will result in the "Saturday Team" becoming much busier and an added administrative workload for the society. We need more volunteers in these roles, especially from those who live locally and can commit to giving up a few hours of their time. GET IN TOUCH PLEASE
