Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. we have had a great year with Pantalaimon and she is still looking great going into the refit before the 2019 sailing season. We have a few jobs to do and will be lifting her out of the water at the end of January. One big job is to replace the water between the hull and engine gearbox / S drive unit. The electrics onboard are all pretty smart now, with a Raymarine E7s chart plotter at compass binnacle and a radar display and chart plotter at the chart table. Currently the boat is on her berth (tied up with lots of lines through these winter gales). The heater and dehumidifiers are on and the boat is quite toasty.
Wether permitting we may manage a quick sail round the breakwater on Christmas eve.
If you are thinking about booking for next year, Simon and Shaun at Liberty are taking bookings already and it looks as though we are in for another exciting season.
Enjoy the Christmas break and use it to plan your next sailing adventure.
Happy Christmas from Andy, Sally and family.
