Alba Venturer Refit

The start of the season is fast approaching and we’re nearing the end of our refit. Alba Venturer has remained in the water for most of this, but a lot of work has gone on since the 2017 sailing season finished.

The team have been hard at work:

  • Sanding the copper coat
  • Painting the anchor chain
  • Replacing the heads pipes
  • Replacing the black water tank pipes
  • Replacing the plumbing under the sink in the galley
  • Fitting 2 new hatches in the saloon
  • Replacing wire in the davit
  • Insulating the aft cabin
  • Painting the saloon
  • Fitting a new mizzen sail
  • Repairing the spray hood with new perspex
  • Replacing 6 of the engine injectors
  • Routine service of the engine and generators
  • Varnishing in the saloon

After her final survey next week she’ll be ready to sail for another season and we’re looking forward to welcoming our volunteers on board in 2018!
