Some engine mounts removed ….

October 23, 2018

Thirty – six large bronze bolts and nuts hold the engine mounts in place.  The bolt heads can be seen at the planks and the nuts and washer inside the engine room. The bolts are nearly 1 metre long and need to be removed before the mounts can be taken off the ship to be cleaned and painted. Two people are needed to lift each timber section. Six sections have been lowered to the barge deck so that the shipwrights can proceed with the framing. In total there are 24 timber mounts to be removed.
