Benjamim Guimaraes - dilettantic attempt to lift the ship out of the water

<< < (2/2)

Hankwilliams:
A broken hull isn`t a capital sentence for a inland waterway ship, there are many examples of repaired hulls even with Rhine sidewheelers after world war II. But the B. G. damage could be avoide with a little more sense. These sternwheeler were build very light and fragile.
Still the new video shows some progress in rebuilding and overhaul the ship in relative short time, so we can hope that she will navigate again.
