This week has been very cold and rainy, and we have mostly been driving stuff from the apartment to the boat. The most sunny day of the week we made a trip to Munkedal at the west coast to buy us a second-hand dinghy, which resulted in this very happy baby! (picture)
The apartment is soon to be empty on stuff and we are moving on board, only nine days left til launch. It doesn’t feels like we are going to be ready for launch then, but its just to keep up the spirit and work with one thing at a time and she hopefully will be ready.
Lately we have been doing some interior, engine work and stowage. It still looks like a bomb have gone of inside and I have no idea of where everything is going to fit. Maybe some things isn’t necessary and can be sorted out, we’ll make time for some further pick over after the launch. Today Marica started with polishing the boat and she is going to be so nice and shiny when she’s finished.
Yesterday we went on a spontaneous road trip to a quaint west coast town called Munkedal, where we had found a dinghy for sale. Though it was six years old it looked as good as new so we bought it. We got a really good price and the man selling it was a very decent person.
We seized the opportunity and paid a visit in Uddevalla at the way home and stopped at the mall called Torp, where we did a stop at SeaSea boat accessories shop to look and plan for the coming equipment.
The first thing, when we come home was to test out the dinghy in our living room, Pelle thought it was hilarious, he was so happy about our new toy.
We hope fore better weather the coming days so we can polish and wax the rest of the boat, the deck is so oxidized and dirty, it could for sure need a little love. Then there is time for some grind and paint for the hull and keel. And as a last touch, a firmly clean inside. Then it’s time to move a board.
The other day I made my first order on ebay I ordered a pure sinus 12v – 220v inverter 1500w max 3000w. Brand DoPower from China. It’s going to be interesting to test it out, its really cheap. Corresponding in Sweden is at lest four times more expensive.
