Things are happening

After a period where it felt that nothing was happening it suddenly changed
The handiest guy I ever met was referred to us and he started with removing of the teak decking and repairs to the GRP under the deck. All of a sudden Mystic Rhythm is being transferred to her original beauty and we are most satisfied
The electrician has repaired the freezer which is a bonus and Associated Rigging came through on time and most professional. Our rigging is all fixed and the Pelican hook has been installed and we cannot wait to take her for a sail
In the mean time we found Southern Ropes in Cape Town had a Factory shop and we replaced all the working rigging from there at a fraction of the cost should we have gone the chandler route
I am adding a couple of pics.....

Vessel Name: Mystic Rhythm
Vessel Make/Model: Roberts 45 Charter
Hailing Port: Port Owen, South Africa
Crew: Francois and Madeleine Mellet plus the new skipper - Neil Mellet
About: The dream for us started in 1989. However in 1998 it was totally abandoned with the sale of our boat. In 2004 the dream was revived and we are working hard at it once again
Extra: We left South Africa on 1 December 2011 and started our wanderings over the ocean. So far Mystic has completed roughly 4000 Nautical miles and the Skipper and crew are enjoying every moment
