The mast fittings are almost complete, despite several setbacks with the fittings not being the right size and things not lining up properly. However, we are virtually finished and ready to move onto the next stage, this includes final painting of the masts, fitting the wire ropes or shrouds to the top of the masts, fitting the cross tree's etc.
The crane company are sending a representative next week to check out the job of lifting, access etc, to ensure a smooth job.
On Thursday the 16th July at 10.30 am, the volunteers are putting on a coffee morning in front of the Ramsgate Maritime Museum to raise essential funds, please come along and support us and meet the volunteers.
A request has been submitted to Kent County Council for a small grant to enable us to continue the essential restoration works
