Nautical Artifacts at Kinsale Museum 2018
The Kinsale Tidy Towns project for 2018 involves a number of nautical items which are stored at the back of the Museum ( see photos No’s 1,2 & 3 ). This will entail restoration work on some of the items, such as the buoy, ( see photo No.4 ), the erection of an information stand ( similar to the one in photo No.5 ), and the repositioning and placement of the items in proper order. Some more investigative work needs to be carried out, although some has been under-taken to date and it is laid out below.
There are 3 different types of anchors, a navigation buoy, a lifeboat launching davit, and a large circular plate with a centre hole.
