Out of the water again


After a quick trip from Langebaan to¬†Saldanha and a masterly docking procedure, the boat was lifted out of the water for some repairs. Both of us had the thought “please don’t drop her”!

Saildrive seals were glued back on (divers cleaning the hulls discovered they had come off), flaking antifouling paint was re-done and, best of all…

A new multifunctional display chartplotter, CHIRP sonar (we’ll be able to see all the fish and mermaids under the boat) and radar were installed. It’s like Christmas came early.


Gavin’s beautiful wiring work makes Georgie so very very happy. Cannot wait to play with all the new toys.
