Deck Work

November 14, 2021
Spanning between two deck beams are the timber mast partners which surround and support the mizzen mast at deck level. The mast sockets into the keelson at the base of the white temporary upright. The mast partners are of huon pine and have been reused from the earlier deck structure.
Main mast partners aft of the main deckhouse.
The lead ballast blocks (10 tonne in total) are being slowly returned to their position on the floor frames while good access is available through the open deck areas above. The lead blocks are 45 kilogram each and are only roughly being distributed to their areas at present, as they may need repositioning to finally trim the ship. After final positioning they will be fixed to the floor frames to prevent movement at sea and will be mostly unseen under the internal floors.
