We visited Sindur again today, to find that Jon from Estuary Vessel Management had done as promised, and applied some lovely red anti-fouling paint. With the white boot stripe and the polished hull, Sindur is starting to look great.
The launch date of Wednesday is looking feasible. However, there are no shafts and props installed – so quite alot depends on Travis, over the next couple of days. The engines will not be ready, but once launched sindur can be towed to a berth, to await the heat exchanger to come back from repair.
Currently she is also missing both fuel pumps and all the injectors. They are somewhere in Colchester being refurbished.
Today involved jet washing the wheelhouse roof and structure, and the coach roof. Awlwash get the paint looking surprisingly shiny.
After a roast lunch we tackled the portside of the hull and got a coat of polish on her.
So, hopefully Wednesday to get her wet, as long as the shafts are back in, and the props fitted.
