Description Gorch Fock
Currently at Sailmaster B.V., we are working on the repair & restoration of the steel blocks of Gorch Fock.
We recently completed a major down-rig, January 2016, in Elsflether Werft, Elsfleth, Germany. All yards and topgallant masts were rigged down & dis-assembeled for general repair & replacement. Topgallant masts to be stepped & yards crossed spring of this year, with all newly fabricated secondary standing rigging.
Contracted to complete a standing & running rigging refit by the Germany Navy in 2010.
