Shipyard continues... On water!

Yes, the Africa Mercy is now out of dry dock and safely berthed at the repair quay. She came out of dry dock almost two-weeks ago now, and progress continues all over the vessel. I was down at the ship this last Thursday and I went up to Deck 8 to see the work that has been happening there.

Progress on the protracted pool project, which began back in Tenerife and continued throughout Togo, continues. They've installed "wave-catchers" to try and lessen the impact of the waves.

This is a close-up of one of the "wave-catchers".

The frame for the canopy has been re-assembled on Deck 8... This was sorely missed during the Togo Field Service.
