Out of the water
Every two years, The Soren Larsen is taken out of the water and given some tender love and care. At the time me and Zim leave the Soren, she is sitting in Sydney City Marine. Her crew will work 12hr+ days to get the work done. Strange having to use a very long ladder to get on board.
Really glad I got to see this before we caught our flight. Amazing how they get such a big ship out of the water. I know there is a part of Zim wishing he could stay around for this refit. His relationship with Sydney's tall ships goes deeper than my own. He arrived in Sydney on a tall ship, then found work on another, sailed away and then back again... and now he is flying away. For two years he has worked for this company, but he's excited about the change.
So there you have it. My trip down memory lane is over. The next time you'll be hearing from me I should be somewhere else, making a new life.
NEW ZEALAND HERE WE COME!!!!!
