This week saw the scaffolding go up on the stern of the Kathleen and May. Simon, and the lads from Sid Little Scaffolding, arrived on Thursday morning, and in no time had something resembling a deck house and bridge rigged in no time. This was to allow for a clever bit of cantilevered scaffold over the stern.
"It’s not every day that you get to put up scaffolding on board a ship!" said Simon Little, Director of Sid Little Scaffolding.
Work can now begin on minor timber repairs to the bulwarks round the stern before painting begins.
Work is also well underway on the main masts, and the first will be out of the shed next week. There is still a lot of work to do on the standing rigging.
If you have some spare time why not call down at Brunswick Wharf and lend a hand? There’s lots to do, and always something happening.
