Boogie Nights

A sweary hyperactive maritime professional, really very keen on laughing a lot, doing their best to avoid all the trappings of societies' expectations by acting on impulse to any adventurous idea that wafts by. Let's go!

A long time coming

Yeah.  That's right.  It's been a bloody long time since the last blog post. It's been winter.
But now it's spring I can come out of hibernation and let the world know about the latest  shenanigans on board The Boat as well as planned bullshittery for 2013.
There's a lot going on.
The Boat is coming out of the water for spring maintenance.  I much prefer working in the warm.

On the list:

  • Drop the rudder and check the repairs are still good.
  • Check the prop.  It's rattly. 
  • Drop the mast and replace the rigging.
  • Put in new halyards.
  • Chuck some new antifoul on.
  • Give it a spruce bruce with a polisher and then. 
  • Add the new logos.
  • New logos?
Yes we will have a new boat name. Stuff will be happening towards the big project too...

The solo, nonstop chuckle around Britain. 

It's a monster project, it'll take a while to organise, but at some point this decade there will be a voyage of hysterical proportions.

  1. Hi there from a fellow yotie. You camera holster is being dispatched this morning. Enjoy :-)

    I too am a photographer and yotie....although I recently sold my boat back in South Africa. Hopefully my partner and I will take to the seas once you well know...we dont ever say when :-)

    My partner is also a keen photographer, write (of note. Working on yachts and superyachts - Jennifer Errico) Dont tell her I bragged about her :-) and is currently re-writing it. She is working on something else which I am not allowed just yet. A couple of blogs etc. I have sent her your link and if she pops by you will from whence she came. It might be under Jen Moon. The bag is in mint condition as I bought the Speed Racer which I find more practical.
