Final instalment of dry dock news by Peter Oldham

The final few days of dry dock are always like a rush to the finish line but I’m pleased to say we made it and Venturer returned to her home mooring on Monday under grey skies and a bitter breeze.

With the priorities of inspecting /painting the hull, and replacement of the rudder skeg bearing complete, we shall spend the Winter completing maintenance and improvements that can be done afloat, all the while waiting for Spring or a period of warm settled weather when we can paint the decks and superstructure.

I would like to thank all the volunteers who came to the dock and braved the cold, the dirt , and the skipper to get all the work done  – great job !!
