Namani at Sea
The travels of Nana, Markus and Nick aboard Namani
Two years in paradise begins ...

... with some more grinding and glassing...

A friend commented yesterday that the picture on our homepage was very inconsiderate towards "those who stayed behind". So Urs: To make you feel better, we're posting the picture above...

When checking the anchor roller on the bow prior to stepping the mast last week, we found some play between roller bracket (to which also the forestay attaches) and the hull. Hence no mast yet and some more re-work - involving a day of some contortion acrobatics below deck and a day of grinding above deck. Hope to put some fiberglass on tomorrow, re-bed anchor roller on Wednesday and then we could have our mast back on Thurdsday! While we'd rather be sailing, we're also glad that we discover this stuff here, with excellent facilities and expert advice at Yankee. Stay tuned...

Yes, Namani is back in the water and she still floats! Almost to the day three years after she's been hauled out (see here for a very similar picture...) she's now back at the same dock at which we first arrived here at Yankee Marine in July 2008. Still lots of work to do on the boat but very happy the Namani is afloat again!

The Daily Commute
27-Jul-2011, Casco Bay Lines ferry between Peaks Island and Portland

A foggy impression from our 6:15 am ferry ride from Peaks Island to Portland. Our daily commute to our new workplace at the boat yard these past 10 days... Fog has been surprisingly absent during the past week's heat wave up here, now it seems back to normal. Hoping to get Namani in the water later this morning...
