The Admiraal de Ruyter scout group in the Netherlands, is building a new tugboat using Dormer Pramet tools.
As a water scouting group, the meetings are often dominated by sports and games on the water. However, over the years the fleet of vlets has grown. While this would normally be a very good sign of the program’s success, it did lead to overworking the current tug. To be able to continue their activities in the future in a fun, safe, and responsible way, they decided to build a new tugboat.
Like other scouting programs, the Admiraal de Ruyter scout group is an open, socially engaged youth organization which offers its members an enjoyable and challenging leisure time through various programs. Scouts learn to explore their own boundaries with respect for themselves and their environment and to take responsibility for themselves, each other, and the world around them.
The Admiral de Ruyter Group is more than just scouting. They are also a social partner in the municipality of Krimpenerwaard. Their mission of social engagement fits with Dormer Pramet, which also considers corporate social responsibility very important.
The scouts have finished putting the finishing touches on the tugboat by holemaking and tapping with Dormer Pramet's tools and celebrated the official christening of the tugboat on 7 May.
