Silvery Light is out of the Water!


On Friday 10 July 2015, Silvery Light was lifted ashore and shored in preparation for her big survey.


Weighing in at 67 tons she was lifted out without a hitch courtesy of a 350 Ton capacity crane. Estimating her current weight was a big concern for the hire of a crane of the size required is not cheap and getting it wrong was not an option.  As it transpired our weight calculation was spot on as having used her hydrostatic tables we plumbed for a maximum of 70 tons.


The next step is to finish the strip out of the interior and set the survey in motion!
