Preparing the launch: the sequel ...
Phase 2 : The shoring for the launch!
2012 was a pivotal year for the Hermione! After dismantling the tent that covered the Hermione in the double drydock where she was constructed, the ship was cleared of all its scaffolding and showed itself to the visitors, adorned with its original colors.
In order to be able to set the frigate afloat, which is planned for the middle of March, the company ASSELIN carpenters have now installed the shoring for the launch. This construction serves to keep the frigate in balance while still dry, and allows the gradual introduction of water into the dry dock.
