Scrutineering

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Well the holiday is over and it’s back to some serious work, we had the boat ‘Scrutineered’ today and in actual fact¬†it wasn’t to bad! It took just over four hours as we went through a thorough checklist of all equipment and the boat specs so that we¬† comply with Woodvale’s strict race rules. These are mainly for our own safety and to make sure that we are prepared for a self sufficient crossing of the Ocean.

We have been to the local chandlers to get the final bits and pieces that we needed and also had to call upon the local steel makers to rig us up some support plates for a couple of the boats fixings. However, there is no real major work to do and we reckon by the weekend we should be race ready. From then on it will just be minor tinkering and getting the boat in the water.

We’ll put some pictures up of the boat in the next couple of days and keep you updated. Still on the search for Haribo… Andrew
