Vessels laid up, pictures, work being done etc?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys. 

 

Hope every one is keeping well. 

Anyone got any updates of the vessels laid up with what if any work is being done to them and any recent pictures of them. Seems all is quiet lately. 

Thanks. 

Ross.

Would imagine, judging by a recent pic of Normandie on here, that she will get a slap of paint in the very near future.  Barf still looks pristine despite her lengthy lay up.

Yea Normandie certainly needs a refit and paint up but to be honest she always seems to rust pretty badly bless her, around the bow area and stern area! Must be bad prep work on the rusty areas not cleaning it off properly or she just suffers from design issues where the rust gets trapped in and its hard to remove as I say she always rusts again quickly after refit could also be steel quality? Who knows. 

 

But Yea Barfleur looking good so is Bretagne too they have had it easy over the covid-19 issue's. 

Just would be nice to anyone in France who lives near where they are Moored if we could have some pictures. Certainly miss Bretagne, was the first time in my life I only managed to sail on her once last year!!! 

Thanks.

Yea that's just rust streaks as you say is nothing much but Normandie always suffers heavy rust around her Bow door area and on the sides too. Nothing major but it always comes through not long after every recent refit!! Probably just paint over the rust!! 

 

It's not her age as many other vessels older then her don't suffer this. Bretagne always seems to hold old out pretty well with any major rust really she always looks pretty good even after a year or more after refit. Poor Normandie has rust a few weeks after refit coming through!!

Suppose depending on the ship yard at the end of the day doing the painting.
