2009-2010  

Work inside the hull continues with the engine and boiler room (the centre length of the hull) mostly finished – frames installed from keel to deck, deck beams and gusset plates installed, and most of the longitudinal and transverse steel bulkheads, all in new steel. Only two bulkhead plates were sound enough to save, and were refurbished. Bulkheads were hot riveted in the traditional way, using contract and voluntary labour.
