It is already 8 months since last Christmas and only 8 months before we want to leave these shores!! In fact we want to have a 3 month shake-down cruise around NZ before that! The list still seems endless and the boat is looking like a disastrous war zone. I look forward to the day we begin putting it all back together again. Lane assures me we are still on target.
Painting: Our next job is to get the decks ready for sanding and painting which is much easier with all the deck fittings removed. This includes removing the stanchions which in turn involves removing the overhead ceiling panels to get remove the nuts from the bolts!
