And the frames keep getting bigger ….

November 27, 2017

Several frames are being laminated to be installed adjacent to the bow thruster.  The length needed from keel to gunwale is approx. 4 metres. As can be seen, the frames are being laminated as one piece. This will maximise the strength needed for the fitting of the bow thruster.

This bolt, probably between  the keel and keelson, at the bow was placed there during the 1970’s refit of the ship. It is in good condition and has been derusted, primed and painted.  It will however have frames rebated either side of it and therefore not seen again for maybe 100 years.
