Back to Work

08 November 2012
We've been away for a month and now we're back! I dare say we missed her. It is good to step back from a project of this magnitude to reassess and get the big picture again. With our renewed enthusiasm we've tackled the steering, (it's nearly complete) and with the 2 helms it turned out to be less of a 'spaghetti factory' than we anticipated. We're working on getting on the last 4 portlights (in the hull). We've finalized a lot of our electronics purchasing (radar etc etc), decided on and bought our fridge, and the kid's cabin has seen lots of progress. I think we're back in the groove.
