Master Mariner

Tuesday 23 September 2014: Old fashioned maintenance

The captain of this vessel must be born in the tall ships era some three hundred years ago. When maintenance was needed to wooden sailing ships, a heavy hawser was connected up in the main mast and the vessel was pulled to a heavy list. By doing so, it was possible to clean and repair the vessel on one side. This vessel is moored on the buoys in Rotterdam and is doing exactly the same as Captain Bligh and Nelson would do it.
