Some additional safety work has been completed in order to reduce risk to the public when visiting the ship. This includes: Handrail and anti-slip paint installed to the final hinged part of the access ramp and safety netting around the entire prom-deck and engine room.
Water-tight bulkhead cable transits have now been installed and work continues on fitting the cable trays.
Dummy rivets are currently being fitted to the two vents that were fabricated and supplied to us by our former H2C Belgian partners VDAB.
Cleaning up of the copper pipes by our volunteers is progressing well.
The general service pump is palletised and ready to ship to DDL.
Due to the current financial status, I have drawn up the following list of work that can be progressed with little or no cost on materials. This list is not exhaustive.
Fabricate and install steel stairs main deck to lower aft saloon.
Re-construct poly tunnel to enable spraying of vents.
Complete fitting of cable trays, re-route temporary lighting and bilge pump cables, install temporary power circuit and fit extra emergency lights.
Paint spray: lower forward saloon, lower aft saloon, port and starboard gangways, engine room, forepeak, chain-locker, old galley and aft steering compartment.
And much much more
