Just as when Duyfken was built, and just as during her many, many sea miles, the beauty of Duyfken is that so many people have been and will be involved in getting done what needs to be done. Yet again, over the last couple of days, with help of a continuously growing number of old and new volunteers, we made great progress in the refit. Last Monday she was launched at Boat Lifters, looking sharp and ready to go back in the water with new anti-fouling on the lower hull and fresh oil and paint above the waterline. Some final touches on vessel and spars on Monday afternoon, and on Tuesday we started first thing with stepping the masts. The mobile crane of the Boat Lifers yard started carrying the mizzen yard over at 0800 and at 1130 the main mast and fore mast were secure in place. After lunch the bowsprit was put in position. The crane driver and his assistant were very patient through it all as we tried to puzzle together the wedges around the mast. The rest of the afternoon was used to get the standing rigging and gammoning in place. We also spent a few hours loading all running rigging and sails in cars and drive them from our sea containers at the yard next to the Endeavour shed over to the ship. All in all a very productive day, thanks to our professional refit team of riggers and shipwrights, again with help of the dedicated volunteers. This morning, Wednesday, at 0800 the two tugboats of Adsteam arrived. They have been moving us around Fremantle to and fro our various berths here since Duyfken arrived a few weeks ago and we go better every time, learning every time. Almost too bad that we are going to be under own power soon! Next to all the work on the outside of the ship, many hours are spent down below getting engines, propellers, and generator back in commission. After a stop at the fuel dock, the tugs towed the Duyfken to our next temporary berth at the Fishery Department Fleet Maintenance docks, courtesy of Harbour Master Steve Jenkins. This will complete the re-rigging tasks over the next few days, to be ready on Sunday, December 1st. It is really good to see Duyfken step by step become a real ship again.
