There have been a lot of obstacles to overcome
in the Ste. Claire restoration project.
However, let me assure you that the project is
still on course. In fact, we are closer than
ever for the rebuild to begin.
We have hired a new architectural firm who has
truly been great for us. Not only are they
local but they are basically taking us by the
hand and guiding us every step of the way.
So far the firm has come out to the ship and
performed testing on the steel. Most of the
beams and poles not only passed the test but
exceeded the regulations. However, some new
poles may need to be added for additional
support but they will not take away from the
historic grandeur of the ship.
Drawings for the ship will be completed shortly
and the next step will be to find a dock or
shipyard where building can begin.
