The new deck house on the Antigua gets shape! The installation work is almost finished. At the moment there is a lot of hammering inside!

The deck house is transported by the classic Scania Torpedo truck from the Bruinsma brothers to Franeker. There it is placed on the Antigua. Some adjustments will be needed here and there, but on this exciting moment the euphoria predominates!
On the SRF shipyard in Harlingen an Aluminium construction kit is transformed into a Deck house for the Antigua.
Technical drawing office Gaastmeer makes a construction drawing. Shipping Inspection and Classification Society are notified. The plan is approved and construction can begin!
