After months of work by teams of Work Experience participants from Communicare and the Salvo’s, we finally removed all the accretions of her life as a floating restaurant from both above and below the deck. We scraped and cleaned her entire 22 M Length inside, removing approx 8 cu.metres of dirt, rubbish and old fittings. She is now the simple organic creature her creators intended. Our first row into the bay proved what an easily driven vessel she is. Eight oars-people found her childs-play to get moving and manoeuvre ing. We have found a mast and have a suitable spar. Our minds are now focused on finding suitable timber for the ‘fish’.
