If you have been following the progress of this winter refit on our calendar page you’ll have been expecting a “Tow to Oare Creek” where the barge goes into dry dock for painting and attention. Dave Brooks has been on the case and has posted some nice pictures in the Cambria Sailing Barge area of FaceBook.
Dave supplied the following commentary. “Cambria made it to Oare creek safely today. Whilst she is at Oare, Tim Goldsack will be carrying out a list of jobs we require to be completed before she sails in April.
Also whilst she is in dry dock we require as many painters as we can to smarten her up. This year we will be spared the mucky job of anti-fouling as Tim and his team are doing it.
If possible we would like to get the hull scraped and painted.
This weekend, if weather permits, the mainmast needs painting. (Access to dry dock with extreme care this weekend as only a temporary gang plank, fixed gang plank will be in place next weekend.)
Next weekend the re-rigging will start so as many hands as possible to help with this and the last of the painting would be appreciated, please lat me know if you can attend”.
Thank you to all the volunteers who can help with this – please get your ‘bids’ in to Dave as soon as possible
