The clean hull was painted with Jotun’s paint and the fender replaced. The engine was lifted to enable removal of the gear box and the drive plate changed. The stern gear was removed and checked.
The forward canopy well was cleaned down and painted. New forward bollards were fabricated and fitted.The final stage is for the tender to be sea tested and then delivery to Trinity House.
