As mentioned in the main text, Notis Mpilias oversaw “Faneromeni's” rigging.

He was of one of the last surviving traditional riggers, and at the time that the masts and their rigging were installed on the “Faneromeni” (July 1988) he was 85 years old.

Born on the island of Salamis, Notis Mpilias was renowned as rigger throughout Greece. Unfortunately he, too, is no longer alive.
