All of a sudden the UK has shed the winter snows and got back to summer sun.
There's still a chill in the wind
but the winds are a bit lighter too.
We've been down to Hamble a couple of times this week, rush hour on the river there. All around the new boats are being rushed out of the various yards for the season, Pete is getting one ready for on-ship delivery
. It's on a ten thousand a day penalty if it delays the sailing. He's enjoyed working through the cold and damp but now the suns out he wants to get back to his project
In the Quayside Marina 'Talia' is back, good to see. And the tri that got dismasted by an 'unmanned' dutch trawler
is in the shops undergoing insurance
We've finally traced our problem back to a corroded gear
cable that has had us losing confidence in the drive system. Local replacement at Aquafax in Hamble.
Where abouts are you, what are you sailing/working on at the moment.
