The port of Ermoupolis (Syros, Greece) has been used for a long time not only as the usual shelter and commercial and passenger gateway, but also as a ‘repair and build’ shipyard.
One Spring day we walked through the small boats’ repair shipyard and saw a few being readied for the coming Summer season. I liked the various stages of repair on display, and (like in this one) the contrast between the top, shiny part, and the rusty, still ‘to do’ part. But of course, we arrived there at siesta time :-)
One thing that was done already though (and probably done first) was the bow siren – still the best protection against storms and other misfortunes at sea.
