Paul has put the Solar Panels on Kabuki, they are mounted on the stainless steel lifelines by the cockpit. They fit well there, but spoil the lines of the boat (some sacrifices have to be made). Paul went for 2 x 40 watt panels, we are not huge power consumers, and we wanted them to be small enough to move and store if required.
As you can tell Kabuki is Paul's project, I chip in every now and then with a canvas project, or "holding the other end of that bolt" thing. Paul is quite happy to potter away on his own. It is the small things that take the longest sometimes. Like the hand sink pump in the head. It was not working and we sent away for new parts/service kit, it took a couple of weeks to get it sorted.
I am halfway through the Revue at the Octagon theatre, we have had good reviews. But i will be pleased when it is finished, it takes a lot out of you.
Anyway cheers for now
