Progress on propeller shaft works

May 16, 2021

The stainless steel shafts have been lifted into the engine room and placed on temporary supports while the stern tubes are welded ready for final fitting to the hull.

The stern tubes and shafts are shown here in their final location, although this was a trial fit to ensure correct alignment prior to welding the stern tubes and hull plates.
One of the bronze propellers ( 1.3 metre diameter) awaiting installation after the stern tubes and shafts are finally fixed in the hull. The marks on the blades are the final buffing work completed after shaping. They are a work of art and will only look better once installed on the ship.
