The Voyage of 'S/V Röde Orm' - Sweden

Come on board and take part in our adventures while exploring the world at the slow pace of a sailing boat. We left in June 2009, heading south to escape the northern winter... to start with. Currently in Algarve/Portugal taking it one day at a time.

At last, the paintjob itself is started

03 May 2009
Well, believe it or not, but I was actually sanding for most of the day. Also busy glassing the two holes in the hull underneath the v-berth were the two GIANT and heavy (approx. 6 kg each!) bronze sensors for the good'ole 'Brooks & Gatehouse' log were installed. After 44 years of hard work, these units with inbuilt seacocks (see the picture) is now discarded since the electromechanical (?) instrument with it's 'speedometer' stopped working shortly after I aquired Röde Orm. Despite my trouble-shooting and disassembling of this unit it still refused to function. Thus I now refused to keep it onboard, hereby releasing the possible free storage weight of approximately 14 kg.

I could find other things of the equivalent weght that could add satisfactory to the well-being of the crew. Like b-e-e-r for example :-D

Meanwhile Isabelle started to roll the first coat of two part primer on deck. Needless to say, the only rain in almost a month came within an hour after she was done.
