The long anticipated Return to Water looks like it is finally going to happen!
The crane ship AAL Shanghai is currently moored in Newcastle and is expected to arrive in Melbourne around 10 October according to current estimates.
On arrival in Melbourne the AAL Shanghai will prioritise her commercial business interests before she can make herself available to perform the lift and Return to Water of the Alma Doepel. It is still too early to predict when this might be, but we understand it won’t be before 14 October on current estimates. The decision is not ours to make.
Due to Covid restrictions we are unable to activate the planned series of events highlighted in the September Newsletter.
In order to bring the Return to Water spectacle to our loyal supporters, sponsors and ex voyagers a LIVE STREAM of the event will be taking place.
DATE and TIME
Saturday 16th October, 2pm
The LIVE STREAM has been made possible by the generous support of:
Michael Smith – Sun Films
