Built in Belfast in 1885 the SS Polly Woodside is a three masted iron hulled barque which is preserved afloat in Melbourne, Australia. Her berth is a, now flooded, dry dock built of timber. Beckett Rankine were engaged to advise on the ship’s long term preservation and particularly on the works to the dry dock.

Our scheme for modifying the dry dock to enable the ship to be periodically docked down for hull maintenance was completed in 2009.
