Shoulda come and said hello! :thumbup: but not run the slow red boat down in the process...

 

Now.. was you the boat that couldnt get the black gennaker up properly or the one with the white one blasting along at sh%#ing your pants speed?

Not this weekend but over the last month i have been doing something new. I had a delivery planned Tahiti to Auckland but it failed to materialize. Angela had gone to visit her mum in Florida so

Got 10 boats towed back into the environment before 10:30 this morning, waited until tide came in, floated off the cradle and went to the mooring only to find it had become an ecosystem all of its own

School holiday cruise me and my boy

You wouldn't have wanted us that close to you as the dudes aboard haven't sailed a skiff for a combined total of 37 years. So can you now pick which boat we were? :lol: :lol:

 

Pulled the kite up the 1st time only to find it's got some silly ball that caught on the shrouds. Got over that and got rocking only to have the tiller extension fall off in my hand OH CRAP!!!!!! but made a good save and didn't go tits up. We had a few teething issues but also had a ball so given sail or 2 more we'll come right. In a straight line we weren't slower than the white kite and they have sailed Javs no stop for a decade so pretty happy about that bit. So we have decided are dangerous on any course that doesn't have any rounding marks as changing direction is still causing the odd issue :lol: :lol: :lol:

Maybe it needs another ball.... :twisted:

And how it looks now...kind of. I have finished off more of the trim and fitted the Gas detector, but don't have an updated pic. But you get the idea. So I now have a far better fridge box. Bigger and far better insulation. The Califont is now in the Galley instead of out on the Pilot house.

Moments before I, in all my teenage wisdom, decided to grind carbon in only stubbies and a straw hat. I think I got pretty badly sun burnt, cause lying in bed that night was extremely itchy and uncomfortable.

 

Ha ha!

 

In a moment of stupidity I bought a new project boat. Wild Thing is going to have a sibling to play with!
