As at 19th December, progress was satisfactory. Waverley is due to leave the pontoon at the end of January with all steelwork complete. 70 people were currently employed rebuilding the ship, including 32 steelworkers in two shifts. The total workforce would be increased to 90 following refloating.

Heritage Lottery Fund monitoring and Marine and Coastguard Agency surveys were satisfactory.
