Very enjoyable record of living out a dream... Well documented and fun to view. I Look forward to upcoming videos and willing to offer any help from my past experience in boat / yacht repair as needed.

Yep, great video and story. I'm only up to number 5, but can't wait to catch up and see what happens next. Very inspiring journey of a normal person following their sailing dream. : )

Same here.
Thanks Boatman, what a gem.
She's done all that work since August 30 - makes me ashamed of the slow pace of my 'refit', and i don't have to work in 40 degrees C.
Today i got out of my bunk at 11am...

Re: Something to watch...

Just found this thread an hour ago and guess what? That's the same boat as mine! When I bought a year ago I'd never heard of Reinke despite a forty year interest in metal sail boats.
Only watched the first episode so far so not sure if she has the steel or aluminium version.
Looking forward to the rest of the videos when I have time. I suspect that young lady's work rate might put mine to shame though.
