Running Parallel

It's frustrating when motivated direction is thrown, and jobs that we thought weren't going to be done for a few weeks are having to be started.  Centreboards are on hold, although one board is half way through, and is already looking amazing.  Craig is a very talented foil maker, making them both strong, and light - I still get amazed watching him.

Everything is precise, everything is perfect.

Electrical is nearly ready with amazing thanks to Gavin at http://www.marineelectrics.co.nz/.  Such a wealth of knowledge and expertise. 

Engines are also nearly plumbed up ready for running - both Craig and I reading manuals thoroughly, getting our own maintenance schedule ready for the future.  Everything is new, she will purr.

Raining lots at the moment - middle of winter in New Zealand is just that- but it's still beautiful.  Just a wee bit chilly.  Kids are still running around with the bare minimum - typical Kiwi kids. Full of beans. 

Trying to cull their toy boxes ready for onboard Mazuran. Very excited to be reducing clutter.  I like to think we will have a space for everything!  They are also getting VERY excited.

Craig's precision and expertise hard at work making our first centreboard
