Turning of the hull.

Yesterday was the big day. The hull of ‘Waratah’ had to be turned. And turned she was. It had to be done by using only chain block tackle, because a crane could not have accessed the building. On top of that the roof trusses were not strong enough to lift from, so the total of 7 chain blocks had to be attached to the upright columns.

Once the whole setup was rigged and prepared, Wynand and his team turned her in 1,5 hours! Another milestone achieved.
