Duyfken is an ageing wooden ship and with age comes a steady stream of work to replace and repair those ‘bits’ that have, or are nearing their end of life.
Over the past five years, much has already been achieved:
- the deck has been replaced
- new sails have been added
- the old engines have been retired
- new fuel tanks installed
- the electrical system has been completely rewired.
Replacing the masts is the next big-ticket item. There are always big dollars associated with such maintenance.
