Funnels!

Week 55. Funnels! Well that's what my wife calls them! The dorade boxes have been polished with G3 paint renovator and have come up so fantastically they deserved new dorade vents. The Plastimo replacements were ordered and the forward two were installed today. This also inspired a cleaning of the superstructure. Using the G3 resulted in an amazing rejuvination and hopefully the photos show this. And then there was the general cleaning. And why! Well Sephina played host to a famous yachting celebrity today but my health care training means I will have to respect confidentiality and his or her privacy. The meeting was to look at Sephina's teak decks with a view to having the same done to his or her recent yacht purchase. Hopefully if things work out I might be able to say more in future but I was proud of the way she looked today. I am getting more and more confident that the refit will be truely spectacular. Also completed this week were the installation of the generator battery which required a base to be fabricated, the continued renovation of the teak in the aft cabin and the start of the speed sensor install. This week has seen TLC continuing on the renovation of the interior where the damage to the lockers had been caused by the leaking chain plates. Paul has done an amazing job in rebuilding the damaged carcass and lining the cupboards with teak. He has also nearly completed the air conditioning teak facing and vent under the chart table. So in summary this week has seen consistent progress in a number of areas and long may it continue.
