Hull steelworks progressing well

The steelworkers have been busy on Freshspring for over two weeks now and are making good progress, working from the bow to aft.
There are currently three teams working, two are positioning and tacking on the plates, with the last building up the seam welds. Rather than craning the plates into place, hooks are welded onto the hull and chain blocks are used to lift large plates into place before being trimmed to size and formed around the hull using more chain blocks.

The next Freshspring Bideford open meeting will be on Tuesday 13th September from 7.00pm. All are welcome.
