2016 New Horizons for le bateau atelier en Voyage ~ _/)
02 April 2016
Scheduling plein air competitions, winter project check-offs and preparations for the new sailing season!
We continue to work on restoring the woodwork in Sparrow's cockpit and redesign of her bimini/boom tent configuration. We've been utilizing a Taylor-made bimini umbrella for two years now, but it does not suffice for rain and I believe aided the dry-rot situation. I'm thinking a nice dodger and bimini combo would be a better solution.
Looking forward to hitting more plein air events and to begin Sparrow's tour of duty chartering out Paint Out Adventures for the artistically inclined. Bringing along folks for an afternoon of creative challenge and cruise aspects seems like the perfect combo for a truly restorative experience~ The kind of day that makes for sound & well deserved sleep at the end of the day!
Proud to announce I'll be graduating from my first Diesel Mechanics class in May and am already utilizing some of the tricks I've learned on the Sparrow's iron jenny, "African Queen". Feeling confident to handle any of her issues that arise was my goal!
Tybee and I look forward to many sunrise & sunset events aboard our beloved Sparrow this season~
