Planned to leave for Madagascar early July 2015 but due to various problems with motor coupling, registration and auto pilot have postponed trip to Madagascar until next May.
Completing some further modifications. These include increasing size of rudder to stop auto pilot wandering and be able to tack the yacht at low speeds and relocating the main electric winch to make this more friendly to use.
