Back in the water

When you are on the hard, there is a huge list of jobs that you want to do in the shortest time possible Prop The work that needed to be completed on the sail drive was adding the new anode before putting it back together.

The other little job that we did while we had the chance was change the oil in the sail drive. Mast There was still lots (Read more from Back in the water)

Ship wrecked? On the hard and in the yard

Keel We were in the yard and there was a whole host of extra jobs to do. One of the jobs that had not been planned for was the state of the keel.

Raising money for the RNLI

We have set ourselves a target of £500 and we would like to honour our pledge, so if you like our videos then please give a little to those who rescue people in the seas around the UK.
