    Hi Doug,
    That's exactly the sort of information I wanted, many thanks. As you know, my sister and I have a personal interest in Peking, having spent many years with her, as Arethusa, being a background to our home and our father his entire teaching career on board her.
    Merry Christmas,
    Nerys

    "Refurbishment in Germany

    On August 2, 2017, she was transferred to Peters Werft located at Wewelsfleth for a 3 year refurbishment at estimated cost of €32 million:

    New rigging
    New double floor steel plates
    Dismounting of all masts, because these are too rotten
    Docking in dry-dock and renewal of the steel structure
    Removal of the cement that fills the lower three and a half metres of the Hull

    The ship spent about a year in dry dock.
    Peking was refloated on 07 September 2018 with Primer paint Hull.
    She stayed on Peters Werft Pier for about 2 months and goes to dry dock again.
    Teak will be reinstalled before she will be taken to Hamburg to the German Port Museum.

    There might also be an opportunity to make her sail again."

    Here the refloating (video)

    Thanks for that Ian. I know the story of Peking very well having had family connections with her for about fifty years, I was hoping that someone will have seen her in Hamburg and could give me a proper update on what is actually happening to her.

    Yes, I knew that, I wondered if anyone had any more precise information than that. Has the restoration actually started and what is being done? I know the state of the hull was none too good before she left America, what's being done about that.

    Does anyone know the present state of the sailing ship Peking? Built 1911 by Blohm and Voss for F. Laeisz of Hamburg, she was one of the last great Cape Horners. Peking became the training ship Arethusa, moored on the River Medway at Upnor in 1933 but was sold to the South Street Museum in New York in 1975. She was returned to Hamburg in 2017 to be completely restored. Does anyone know what progress has been made. I have seen photos of her arrival in Hamburg, but nothing beyond that.
