The Masts are complete and ready to lift into place on the ship…. Now we need the Rigging Screws!

The Rigging Screws (aka Bottle Screws) are large forged steel screws that provide the tension in the rigging to ensure the masts stay up!

The new Rigging Screws will be hand forged in Melbourne using traditional methods. We require 64 rigging screws each with a value of $500.  A generous donor has offered to match all donations for the bottle screws bringing the sponsored price down to $250.   This will get your name on our honour board!


You can donate online on this page.


All donations of $2.00 or more are tax deductible. A tax receipt will be issued.

All donors are recorded in the history of the ship By donating you are leaving a legacy for all to see
