On the Water!Markus

We were finally able to take Namani for a first test sail down to Peaks Island today. Some gusty winds around a passing cold front but everything seems to work fine. Now the big question is what hurricane Irene will be doing as current forecasts have her track right through New England. Originally we thought to hunker down in some safe bay but after the latest forecast we'll probably have Namani hauled out again before Irene's arrival on Sunday.

A poem from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow of Portland perfectly captures our experience here over the past three weeks.

A quick look to Namani's stove reveals that there is still some more boat work on the menu... getting close though - hope to complete Hydrovane installation tomorrow and new Radar on Thursday which then leaves just a few odd jobs - we've said that before though... "nothing ever is easy when working on boats" as they say around the yard. In the meantime we did have the mast stepped and got our sails back today (already had them once last week but stack pack needed some re-work). Stay tuned...
