Cockpit cover

01 September 2009
Last weekend we put up the new cockpit covers. I made them using my old hand crank singer sewing machine, they turned out alright even if I do say so myself. Apart from that Paul and did not do much else on the boat. We are waiting for Friday when Kabuki is hauled out at Norsand for her yearly round-up. This year Kabuki is being hauled out at a slipway, this apparently is alot kinder to the hull than a travel-lift, but who really knows?
We are quite excited, because it means the move on to the boat won't we too far away. But it also means lots of work over the next 3-4 weeks to get Kabuki ship-shape.
Work has been good this week, but then it is a short week for me as I am having Friday off. I drive the Library Bus on Saturday, but it is only for 5 hours and it is quite a bit of fun doing it.
The Photo is of the new covers on Kabuki.
Vessel Name: Kabuki
Vessel Make/Model: Westsail 32 #425
Hailing Port: Whangarei, New Zealand
Crew: Paul Bowling and Wendy Smith
Paul and I have been sailing around Whangarei and the Bay of Islands for the last 14 years. We have owned a few boats in that time, ranging from a 20ft Trailer Sailer to a 36ft New Zealand built Eric Cox design yacht. [...]
Extra: Thought this would be a good way of keeping family and friends up to speed with our progress on getting Kabuki and ourselves ready for the big adventure.
