Great series! Did they crash the bow? I like how you led us through these and then, good as new!

Tash said...

As good as new. Interesting to see the separation of the bow panel in the 3rd photo.

The Feb 12 photo made me smile — looks so much like a piece of clothing being mended. The 'stitching' is similar. Not quite as easy to do though, I'm sure.

Thanks for the series. She looks almost brand new now.

This boat has lovely & graceful lines! And the work looked like no small job!

Boise Diva said...

Amazing how they fix that up.

James said...

They did a great job fixing it!

Kate said...

Fantastic! Looks ship shape to me.

Dina said...

That first pic is fantastic, and the following ones kinda scary. Wow, what happened to her bow?

Did I ever tell you? In '68 I boarded the good ship "Enotria" in Genoa.

I love this series. It gives me hope that even the biggest bumps and crashes can be mended.

Great repair job! From the angle you took this I can hardly tell there had been a problem.

I mean, in the bottom photo I can hardly tell there had been a problem. :)

I'm amazed they were able to fix it in a little less than three weeks.

JM said...

Brand new! :-)

Yes, I would say it needed some extra fixing. It was really interesting to see the process. Nice shots of the series.

Great series, the difference between feb 12th and feb 24th is huge! All new and shiny in the end :)

This ship certainly collided with something - lucky it didn't sink. I thought that hole was for cars to drive in - silly me. Great photos.
