"Hans Wilhelm" can now be lowered into the water

For a whole week and with many helping hands we have repainted the barge "Hans-Wilhelm". Now she is ready to go into the water.

Between July 11th and 15th we have externally overhauled the barge "Hans-Wilhelm". Nearly 300 liters of paint have been applied to the hull. In particular, underneath the ship it was a sweat driving and color dripping work. But it was worth it. See here the photos from the Action Week.

And if you want to know why? Read here.
