Every project goes through the dismantling phase until it hits rock bottom. Then rebuild begins. We are still on the slippery downward slope but expectantly looking forward to the day we look upwards.
We are gradually formulating an overall Scope of Work. Full details won’t emerge until vessel is hauled out on 21st March 2022. No suitable tides until that date.
When sourcing products and equipment from Singapore we draw your attention to the fact we have a Bonded Warehouse and everything we source is duty free. The supplier should be made aware of this. We have lines on all products and equipment. Ked, who owns and operates Popeye Marine Services, just completed her 147th yacht refit. She knows where, who, how, to source duty free products and materials as well as the right person to install them. Hope this helps.
We must all remember we are restoring a piece of British Maritime history and there is worldwide interest. Popeye Marine Services with their first Cariad Facebook post jumped from average 30 hits a day to 5,850 hits in one day. One of them was Kym Clayton the granddaughter of Alan Fitton who sailed Cariad around the world 1953/1954. We view our job as creating something tangible for generations to come. When Cariad arrives in Europe our work will be judged.
