Big ship - small shop

We've made great progress on the deck layer of the first Viking ship for the Motiongate park in Dubai. We first added a layer of plasma cut steel plate, which bolted to the layer below. Then came two layers of welded steel tube and angle. Everything will be braced diagonally in two directs as per the engineer's detailed instructions. On Wednesday we'll begin the disassembly of the sections in order to take the ship's hull out of the shop. We'll then reassemble and finish off the welding of the sides and keels of the ship. Out in the parking lot the targets are steadily being covered with the galvanized wire lath. We are anxious to soon begin the sculpting process!
