Back in Kelibia -again- after the beautifull journey to Tabarka, this time for hauling out. That means maintenance work to the underside of the boat like painting, polishing, service to the transmission and propellor, new zincs and epoxy repair on the iron part of the keel.
A huge 250 ton crane lifts Malaka Queen out of the water using straps and hydraulic power. This is a bit exiting and scary too. It almost looks like this monster will eat the boat!
Kerkouane….a Punic city that was left untouched by other civilisations. Its rediscovery in the 1950’s gives us a unique view of Punic life as it was 2300 years ago. And finally after 3 weeks of work the result is good and the paint is dry. The monster crane takes us in the water again!
