Our wharfingers Bruce and Sheila sent us an update on happenings at the dock and thought you might all want to know.
Ann Marie cast off last Friday on the first leg of her trip back to England. She is alongside at Brittania Heritage Shipyards until tomorrow when she will be hauled out next door at Trite. The new spars are waiting to be shipped and new canvas and running rigging has been ordered. The delivery crew have arrived, which should be a relief to Oz, and they are still hoping to head south soon.
We welcomed the newest addition to the fleet. Ella McKenzie is a locally built 1951 tug boat. New owners Gideon and Bourton live close by and we are sure they will gladly answer any questions you have about their vessel.
