Regeneration Year 2

Words and Pictures by David Elms & Philip Tolley - 5 March 2004

Large areas of rotten platework have been removed from the Gents toilets,
and the interior stripped of all fittings. (DE)

The crew mess is almost non-existent at the moment! (DE)

Replacement of the topside plating in the dining saloon is nearing
completion, and the new deck frames are in place. The new frames will have
intermediate support from columns (similar to those in the Britannia Lounge)
which has enabled them to be of much smaller section than the originals.
This should increase headroom by several inches. (DE)

The new beams in situ to support the after promenade deck. (PT)

Some of the new plating on starboard side aft (PT)
