We will "Liveaboard"

Oyster 406

We are nearly “Live-aboards”. So much has happened on both the boat and domestic fronts.

Boat. All the systems are now installed and the jobs list is so small I can’t even find it. The new engine continues its running in phase and it is a little frustrating that we have to motor about in this fine weather to put engine hours on the clock when I’d rather be sailing. New additions since my last post are many but the Tropical Bimini is of note. This has been made by Stephen and the boys from the BoatShed in Port Dinorwic and is beautiful made being both adjustable for height and position. It also has a window in the roof so I can see the mainsail! My brother joined me again at the weekend and his engineering knowledge made it so much easier to finish a couple of jobs including the diverter valves for the water-maker. The Automatic Identification System (AIS) is now operational and Sephina’s progress can now be monitored. This can either be achieved by using the iPad/iPhone app "MarineTraffic" or going to the MarineTraffic web site here and in both cases searching for Sephina of Beaumaris.

Domestic. The house is now available for rent and all our belongings are either in storage or at the local recycling centre. As I sit here writing this I realise it will be the last time I do so from a house on land. I hope the IT connections that I have spent hours installing will allow me to continue to update the website from the boat.
