The Raft - Schaluppe
The non-profit association for "mobile activities e.V." is a group of voluntary comitted people from Hamburg and refugees, who together wanted to realize the Project "Schaluppe - a raft for Hamburg". The aim is to build a free space for art and culture. The raft should be a meeting place for EVERYONE, run on a non-profit and non commercial base.
Ther raft "Schaluppe" was built completly voluntary from 1st of July to 30th of September. On Septmeber 24 was the launching ceremony, a week later the raft was set on to the water.
It is 15 meters long and five meters wide powered by two outboard engines. The Floating bodies were welded by themself. The berth is the Billwerder Bay at the moment. There the marine equipment is installed and afterwards the hydraulic lowerabel upper deck is built. If all of this is done, the admission for small vehicles for internal waters can be chanced from temporary to permanent.
In spring 2017 the plan is to organize regional cruises with different events like cinema, theater and concerts on board of the raft.
Every single screw, which was installed, is from REYHER.
