On the Hard

15 October 2007 | Ray Roberts Marine, Whangarei
At the moment we are doing a few repairs, engine maintenance and a quick anti-foul, before the summer season. We plan to be a bit more prepared next year and do the full monty.
So far we have not done a great deal of sailing in Kabuki as the weather over the winter months has been pretty horrible, but when we have sailed Her we were pretty happy with Her performance.
When we first bought Her we where a bit worried about Her Wetsnail reputation, but since then we have talked to a few more Westsailors and we feel a bit more reassured.
Any how as this is my first ever Blog (what a horrid word) I will keep it short. cheers for now
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.
