FURIE 2014_3789
A few weeks ago we were approached by the nephew of an ex crewmember of the tug. Hij asked if it was possible to visit the Furie with his uncle. Obviously that was possible and they came over on Thursday 12th of June. It turned out that he used to be an able-bodied seaman on board the tug, then called Holmvik, in 1974. He was responsible for the chain connections of the wood rafts. A lot of stories and pictures and an ex-crewmember who was really impressed with the present state of the vessel. A succesful visit after which we went for a little sailing trip.
Last Friday, Saturday and Sunday we did trips with various groups to Rotterdam. Thanks to the beautiful weather, this trips were a great succes.
From now on we time for the necessary maintenance. Presently the carpentery of the port side forward cabin is ongoing and the maintenance of the wheelhouse wood work started.
