Let’s get those masts stepped!
We’re starting work on Alma’s rigging
The magnificent achievement of returning Alma Doepel to the water after her extensive hull restoration was the highlight of 2021. It’s now time to look to the next major milestone – stepping Alma’s masts.
First, the basics – fitting pin rails and chain plates, a job for our skilled shipwrights. This first stage rigging work, including materials, will cost $30,000. That’s our Stage 1 rigging target.
Purchasing the hundreds of metres of standing rigging wire and fittings required to support the masts will be our Stage 2 target for 2022.
You can donate directly to our mast stepping campaign, or you can choose to ‘Buy a Block’ ($500) for the rigging and have your name on the Block Honour Board
