Not sure how to ask this without sounding like a smart ass, but how exactly are you working on it? You should understand that "I'm building a model of it" is a perfectly legit answer in my book.
The ship is now located in Port Adelaide.
It was derelict for many years after sinking in its berth in 1991.
However, because of it's incredibly robust design and construction it suffered no structural damage.
After much tribulation and a major engineering triumph, it was transported to Adelaide in 2014 where it is undergoing preservation work and some repairs to perished decking. The former first class cabin area is being converted to a function room, but the remainder of the ship will be preserved "as is" so that visitors can walk through a genuine 155 year old passenger ship, not a mock up.
It is being preserved by a work force of volunteers, with a variety of roles. Some are tour guides and manage the information centre, some are tradesmen and women doing the carpentry, some are engineers and marine engineers managing repairs to the superstructure. Some are project managers that are developing long term business plans, funding and public relations. But everyone will end up doing a bit of everything.
My current role is to develop sponsorship relationships and funding. I also do tours and visitor centre work.
I haven't been called on to help with the grunt work, because at the moment most of the physical labour is replacing decayed flooring.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_Adelaide_(1864)
