Engine room work

March 23, 2021

This picture shows the starboard engine beds bolted through the frames to the outside of the hull and capped with steel plates to which the engine will be attached. The stern tube hole was drilled through the aft bulkhead and through the hull planking and now has the steel stern tube in place through the bulkhead. Identical work is complete on the port side. The next phase will be to insert seals, bearings and propeller shafts in the stern tubes, thus making this area of the hull watertight. All areas of the engine room have been under coated except the original bilge stringers seen at left and the keelson on the right.
