We are only days away from lighting the new boiler for the first time. This is the culmination of the gargantuan effort that the volunteers, and the team from Larssen Engineering have put in to the refurbishment of Challenge. Not only has a new boiler been installed, an oil separation unit, two new generators and a water desalination plant have been installed. A new Mizzen mast has been made and stepped, and a new wheelhouse is nearing completion. And there is loads more going on. All the tidying up and the painting is ongoing.
The light at the end of the tunnel can clearly bee seen now.
