Revisited Carlina on the 1st. January 2010. In between quite a lot of rain we carried out several jobs i.e. Installation of new fridge, DSCVHF Radio, modification to main cabin bed, had new flybridge cushions fitted and several other miscellaneous jobs. All in all quite a satisfying experience, especially as we are now seeing the boat taking shape to the standard we want. We were here for just three weeks and in that time we were only able to get out into the bay for just one trip. However it was certainly most enjoyable. Now bearing in mind that back in the UK most people were experiencing very cold wintery conditions, snow, ice etc. the particular afternoon we went out, the temperature was about 73 degrees F. No wind at all and a flat calm sea. It was absolutely magical. We returned home on the 19th.January looking to return at the end of February when we will be lifting Carlina to carry out antifouling and anode replacements. and hopefully not much else.
We will keep you posted.
