DECEMBER 1998


Soon the shed which houses Duyfken's
construction will go to the city of Albany
and become a Maritime Heritage centre.
The mural which decorated our west-end
wall has already been dismantled and
gone to Albany.


From high over the stern we see the main
deck being laid.


Rick Mitchell the sail maker has started work
on the sails when it seems he should be
sewing a shirt.


Nick Truelove and Karim Kouniali work on the
beakhead while Rupert Weller fits a gunport lid.


The view from the very highest tip of the stern.


In the foreground, elm logs being made into pump
barrels, above, the newly varnished planks glisten.


Looking aft into the aftercastle while deck
planks are being laid.
