Finally under sail
18 March 2006 | Georgetown yacht basin, MD
It was a trying year. Jabulani was moved from her re-construction site to the Sassafras river, in MD, where some problem areas in the hull were detected. Fixing Ferrocement boats is easy, but time consuming, and with my work schedule it took another 5 months before Jabulani was launched again, this time more permanately. So on November 4th, Jabulani floated on her own bottom in more than 6 years. The winter was spent doing several projects, to prepare Jabulani for some extended offshore sailing.
