DUYFKEN RETURNS TO HER BERTH. RE-OPENS 20 JULY
For the past few weeks Duyfken has been undergoing a major refit on the hard next door at Kailis Boat Lifters. A large team consisting of shiprights and volunters have attended to hundreds of small and large jobs from cleaning the hull to tarring the rigging. After a long voyage last year in tropical waters from Brisbane to Fremantle, the little ship was well due for important maintainance and repairs. In fact a few more repairs and improvements were needed than was originally expected. Consequently, while she is now back on her berth behind Little Creatures in Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour, the ship will remain closed for another three weeks while the long list of jobs is completed. Our expected re-open date is now Saturday 20 July.
