Trainee Drea finished making a new Cook Islands flag. It is superb. Work on ANN continues. Shaping of floors and frames has commenced. The final plank (for now) has come off her starboard side. Ship’s Carpenter Mark will shape it today (Sunday). After that, frames and floors will be replaced. Trying something new during this tall ship event and set up on the quarter deck to do some interactive sailmaking. This proved to be popular with visitors. Sent most of the crew and trainees off on Friday to sail on Appledore 4 during the Parade of Sail. Things are ticking over nicely.
Fiji and Tigress have received a big “Welcome” present from the VCA (Blue Cross Animal Hospital). It contains collars, toys, dental dry food and a scratching post for their claws made from cardboard.
