Title: Storm continues

We are hammered down by the weather but will not give up.
We work inside the boat and it feels good to say all systems are now up and running, the only thing left is the rigg check.
What have we done in Whitianga?
Diesel generator= Cleaned system and refurbished thermostat - all running smooth and clean
Main engine aligned, newly serviced, propeller shaft with new bearings and propeller serviced
New start battery 
All batteries checked and in good condition
Rudder= new shaft and new greasing system
Rudder= enforced 
Hull= new epoxy and new antifouling
Front hatch= new
Teak deck= all tight with sicasflex and 300 new plugs
Sails=maintaned and repaired
New bowsprit for genacker (100 NZD)
New Autopilot brain and interface
New man over board system
Outboard newly serviced by professional
New cool water pump for fridge
Newly serviced fridge
Bilges cleaned and system tested
Hull polished to great condition and protected
Food in every possible compartment
All computers updated
And so on...
You could say we got a lot done here thanks to great people and their companies, and also our own hard labour.

Since I don't have a good underwater camera this will do for a picture, you can't see New Zealand under the bad weather!
