Behold the new member
of our family
, Anna Karin. She is a “Vindö 45” born in 1983.
For some time now, we have been dreaming about calling a ship our own. Pretty soon we have decided that it will be a conservative long keeler. Since the last charter
trip, particularly since “that night”, were more and more interested in Vindös.
Basically, we wanted to keep looking for “the one” for some time still, some 2-4 years. However, while looking at a second boat
that we saw for sale
during our vacation
trips, Anna Karin spoke to us.
Thus, she belongs now to the family
. She is not perfect, but she is ours.
Two weeks ago, we did the take-over. She went back to her winter storage
directly thereafter, because of some work
that must be done before she sees water
again. This work
is planned by myself, but will be the financial responsibility of the previous owner. Then there is some work that should be done before she sails
, and there is work that can be done… So I keep planning for the winter
We were considering changing the name. But the boat
has always carried the name Anna Karin. You do not rename a new friend either once you meet.
Yesterday we were with her again; we had the engine
winterized, and took the detailed list of equipment
and material that came with her. Possibly, I will be able to visit her every 2-4 weeks in winter, so the relationship can be a fruitful one.
