During his two week visit to Macduff Shipyards to familiarise himself with the marine ambulance and be present at its sea trials, Lovemore Mkandawire was not wasting any time. He was fascinated by the tools and machines around the yard and will take back to Malawi a new skill – gas welding. Taught by the men at the yard, Lovemore succeeded in making a perfect weld at his fourth attempt. He then went on to manufacture one of the anchors for the “Good Hope” which was then galvanised and shipped out to Malawi with the boat.
We are sure this anchor will, indeed, hold!
