Update 19th November

Posted by RichardMartin on November 19, 2016

The working party last Sat went really well-mission to prep the forward bilge for painting accomplished. Thank you to all who helped. Have another working day planned for next Sat 26/11 – mission to prep the lower aft bilge and take more fixtures and fittings off on the upper deck aft in preparation for removal of the whole accommodation block. Timings etc for meeting up will be the same as last week – 10.00 at the dock gates- please let me know if you are up for helping-07967597527. It is also ok to just come for a look on Saturday to see how things are going – just let me know. Although it will be sad to see the cabins go, the planned new ensuite cabins will be superb and make a stay on board much more comfortable in the future. All being well, Egremont will be floated out of dry dock on Friday to make way for other ships. Work will carry on whilst she lies alongside the dockyard. The Hamworthy treatment plant has been cut into pieces and is now off ship. There will be a new plant installed in the lower after bilge area which will deal with waste and pump clean water into the harbour – a big improvement! How much longer will Egremont be at Sharpness? We have decided that it will be much better and cost efficient for her to stay where she is until all the major work is done. I don’t think she will be ready until February at the earliest. More news to follow……..181116.JPG
