Keppel stripped bare for the big day tomorrow.

IMG_20141112_152849We have taken everything out of Keppel today as tomorrow is her big day, when she goes into the boatshed at Roger Fuller Boatbuilding for new footings, bottom and general restoration. When she comes out in the new year, she will be ready for another half century of service on the cut. This is the first time for over twenty years that Keppel has been completely stripped of the camping boat fit out that was put in in the early 1990s and open to the elements. Now the hard work begins.
