Mainsail cover

13 August 2009
Well I finished the Mainsail cover last week or, was it the week before? (where does time go). It was not as easy as the first Mainsail cover I made years back. This one was about 3ft longer, and my hands don't work as well as they used to. But I think I did an alright job, I used my old Janome sewing machine ( the one I used on the other cover). This machine is no good for doing delicate/normal sewing anymore, the tension seems to be all wrong.

So I have now started making a new cockpit cover, which hopefully I will install on the boat tomorrow. This will be of course if I am feeling better, as I have had Paul's cold for the last two days.
Paul was saying today that we may be putting the boat on the hard in a couple of weeks time ( yahoo). That means that we will hopefully be able to move aboard after we have Kabuki back in the water. ........... We are on countdown to departure.....
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.
