"X Marks the Spot..."

Work is now officially underway on the Comet Rebuilt project. The Comet has been stripped of its cabin...

...and a rough template for the new deck has been constructed in parts and put over the original damaged decking.

Furthermore, the exterior planks that need replaced entirely have been marked with a white X, as you can see in the picture below.

It is evident that the ship is extremely damaged due to its lengthy exposure to the elements while it was on display in Port Glasgow. Refurbishing the vessel to look pristine again is an extremely difficult task.

Nonetheless, the team is off to a great start and there is now a firm plan of action as to how they are going to tackle the difficult refurbishment.
