Preparing the boat

We've been working on getting Issuma ready to sail. Most of the sails are now on, the deck has been covered with non-skid paint and tape, a few electrical and fuel system projects have been completed, and we've been studying the way the boat systems work.

We are still at the boatyard where the ever-helpful previous owner, Yann Sergent lives. One couldn't ask for a better previous owner, as Yann and his wife Patricia have helped us with all sorts of questions and projects, as well as feeding us wonderful French dinners.
