Seven months, and nothing to report!
01 August 2012
Sorry if you have been expecting a blog report, but apart from hauling the Bluebottle out of the water for 2 weeks painting the bottom, there has been nothing - wait on! yes there was! We sailed her this Easter to Bruny island (photo shows Nita on board on the voyage to Bruny Is.) and hung out with kids and grandkids, kites were made and flown in howling winds and rain, with family meals around a big table - good times.
And the haulout at the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmamia slipway was an all-day, everyday affair, and hard work.
Since then Jack- the American who sailed with us from Touau to Papeete - turned up in Hobart and I took him and his girlfriend out to the boat for a cup of coffee and a catch-up chat. He has been hitchhiking on trains and boats for years, sleeping rough and dumpster diving, picking up work wherever he can. Cheers, Jack!!
The boat will be for sale very soon. [No, it won't. 24/05/2013]
