there's an exiting new feature on the bottom of todays newsletter, I have secured the services of a registered and qualified drone pilot to film cervia from the air and link it to the Ramsgate maritime museum. after tomorrow, the drone video will be permanently added to the website under the heading,virtual tour
to-date the whole of the superstructure, boat deck, port and starboard main decks, foredeck, have had the rust removed and painted. there's just the aft deck to be finished and the remainder of the hull. and that's this years painting programme for 2017 finished.
There have been a lot of discussions between all the various parties involved about slipping the Cervia this autumn, but no dates have been set as yet. Cervia will be open this Saturday for the heritage open day, which basically means it will be free to come on board for one day only.
