You must be wandering if there is something other then the bees going on in our lives. There is!
I have to say it is a bit much lately. I do not know where to start.
First our “big” sailing boat (Kurr) is now in the water. She was taking in a lot of water.
Much more than we anticipated. On top of that the pump stopped and the motor was under water so Pieter was very busy with cleaning the mess up. He did an excellent job because the motor is now running better than ever.
We also knew that we had to change the rigg again.
So we ordered new rope (hempex) for the sails and the old rope (tarred hampa) we have now used for the rigg and that in return resulted in making Dead-eyes. We are so happy about the result! It just fits the boat perfectly. In stead of going modern we are going back in the day, I guess. We had to move the boat a couple of times to make the adjustments to the masts and riggs and I have sailed her into the box two times myself and pretty proud about it! A boost to my confidence, and boy do I need that! I do want to be able to go out with her myself. That is my ultimate goal. Not an easy task with a sailor as a husband. The plan was to sail this week, but P has to work, he will be back next week and hopefully we can take her out then.
Till next time
