Volunteers are wanted - Removal of the cover


Volunteers are wanted - Removal of the chapel

It's spring. We celebrate with the removal of the ship's winter cover so that she can once again blossom in all her splendor! We will climb on the stand that the cover lies on and lock all the buckles that hold it and then we fold the big cover pieces up on the stand. On day three  a mobile crane will come to lift the chapel on the dock and we will fold them well so they fit in the pallets they are kept in during the summer. Then, the work begins to unscrew the stand and as the arcs become free we will carry them ashore. This is a fun but sometimes heavy work and the more we will be to help, the easier it goes.
