Back in the water today, after a white winter in Burgas
19th February 2017
Winter of Discontent
Hoping to be our last winter apart – final preparation towards France; towards The UK, towards home.
New teak seating too and a hot and cold outside shower
An AIS – B transponder for safety (ships can see us and we can see them on our plotters) – not handy if there are pirates around!
Interiorise all teaked and oiled
Shore power has also been fitted which includes a super dupa charger from France called Christec Ypower. It auto manages up to three battery banks, although we only have two.
The stern cabin has been rebuilt but this lens isn’t wide and fast enough to show it off
