Here’s the trading ketch, Irene, post launch after spending a few days on the slipway.
Her crew have been working on copper plating her bottom – you can just see a little of it shimmering at her bow in this picture.
Work experience placement
We were delighted to have a Year 10 work experience student, Ryan Hoar, on placement in the yard last week from Fowey River Academy.
Ryan spent the week assisting our marine engine, Steve Miller, as he is interested in undertaking a marine engineering apprenticeship when he leaves school.
He is pictured with Paul Toms and Lesley Wehmeyer from Fowey River Academy.
Voyager on the slipway
We’ve had a very different type of boat on our slipway today.
‘Voyager’ is a luxury motor yacht which is in the process of being sold. She is on the slipway so that she can be surveyed for a prospective buyer.
