Welcome back Fred

Fred is back!

Welcome back FredHere is a welcome sight, Fred back and helping to keep me honest.

Fred has been away on a three month project, researching the quality of various Antipodean wines from the comfort of a rented pool in Western Australia somewhere.

That big lump you can see being hoisted on board is a compressor, the start of a 204 volt compressor system for general duties on board and a backup for the boat's main compressor.

  4. That little jib arm is worth its weight in gold! I bet?

  5. Hi Rob

    Well spotted.

    I have one on both the port and starboard sides.

    They were built as part of the series of tasks done before we left Fareham.

    Things were being completed faster than I could blog about them.

    Incidentally, they are built so loads, such as the rib, can be hoisted using the winch up forward.
