Cutty Sark Keel

Cutty Sark Keel
The copper alloy-coated keel of the tea clipper Cutty Sark in her new home in Greenwich. She is one of the last of the sailing boats built for trade with India before the opening of the Suez Canal. Her hull is a steel frame encased in heavy teak timbers.

The ship was originally preserved afloat but started to deform so was transferred for restoration to a custom-built dry dock in Greenwich. The work suffered a major setback in 2007 with a major fire that destroyed most of her centre section. Walking around her today you would never know!

A bit scary having a ship inside a sort of stylish dry dock and joining it there walking below the tump sides. Claustrophobic one should not be...

Thanks again Sonja. The POV makes it look more confined than it is.

Very interesting. They seem to have spent quite some money to find her a new and more suitable resting place. It's been a while since I last was there...

Thanks Dominique. I don't know what the restoration cost, but I think it's a good investment. While we were there she was visited by parties of schoolchildren from France and Germany as well as the UK. Exposing the younger generation to real ships has to be good!
