Cramer MMP is wrapping up with beautiful fall colors all over Belfast. Cooler weather, bright leaves, and pumpkin decorations all over town make it clear that the summer is finally over, and Cramer is getting ready to sail south!
We’re a Boat Again!
Greetings from Belfast! The Cramer is currently floating alongside a dock here at the shipyard, and we are all SO excited. Here’s a quick recap of everything that had to happen to get to this point!
Wrap-up from Yard in American Samoa
Well, the RCS blog has been hard to keep up with, with all of this hard work! We’ve been attacking all sorts of projects here and there, and just about everywhere. We’ve travelled all the way up the masts, to loosen the bottle screws in order to re-tension the stays. We’ve tarred the highest stays. And we’ve worked down to the depths, finishing stowing the food and lashing it in dry stores, getting everything sail-ready. And even to under the bowsprit, climbing and tarring the bobstay.
Yard started off with a bang! No, don’t worry, there were no collisions.
There was only the colliding of different pupils paths, as some crew members of the previous PIPA trip departed, and new crew ready for yard, arrived. After a quick orientation, things started to move around. And this includes people, food, random stuff, any type of stuff really, for there was word of a container arriving soon.
