National Historic Ships Grant
In January 2016 the Trust was awarded a grant from National Historic Ships to be used towards the next phase of the restoration.
On 29th February A & R Way Ltd returned to Clyde Marina to begin work on the second phase of Shemaron’s restoration and preparation for re-launch. Seams were filled on the underwater hull and nails replaced as required, more re-caulking was completed below the waterline, and damaged planking was replaced on the starboard shoulder. New ends were scarfed onto the fendering strakes to join up to the stem. The stem head was repaired and the anchor rollers reinstated.
Also at this time trustees reinstated all coping irons, applied anti foul and fresh paint to the main body.
