Just delivered Concerto around to the next marina and a local GRP chap, he is going to cut out the worst bits of loose and delaminated GRP and rebond the lose internal structure, I will also get him to add in a temporary bulkhead aft of the main bulkhead to strengthen things up on the port side.  It’s only a temporary fix as having spoken to the helpful team at Jeremy Rogers Yachts she will need some serious surgery when we get back (removal of port side furniture, floor, etc), so far the insurance people have been fine.
Mark and I just helped the last Contessa (Caprice) into her berth, he carried on sailing the whole way and I’m in awe, especially as he was single-handed and has had no cooking facilities for the last 10 days due to a split in the gas-line.  Well done David!!
We are shopping today to get the non-fresh food and drink for the boat, fresh food will be bought on Monday.
Very hot here, I gather it’s not so great in the UK at the moment.  We will do our best to bring some sun back with us.
over and out.
