Major Refit 2015

05-Nov-2015

It’s Been A Big Job
 

31 big days of maintenance to complete Stage 1 of the major refit before Duyfken leaves for Hartog Voyage in September 2016 and countless hours of contribution from a team of volunteers and shipwrights resulted in these major tasks being completed:


  1. Installation of new stainless steel fuel tanks with a full upgrade of the fuel lines
  2. Complete upgrade of the electrical system
  3. Re-caulking of the hull seams
  4. Engine room upgrade that saw work done to make this area airtight
  5. Full replacement of the fire suppression and acoustic lining in the engine bays
  6. Full inspection below the water line with the appropriate remedial work
  7. A fresh lick of anti-fouling

… just a handful of what was achieved by the team! 

They say a picture tells a thousand words...here are just a sample of some of the work.
