Digiboat's "Product Testing"
Fri 3 Feb 2012 06:30
Last couple of days a mixture of motoring and sailing. Wind generally favourable when it blows. Always the daily thunderstorms but now out in the open so usually easy to avoid. Sam settling in well now that the going is easier, doing some odd jobs and clean up to prepare for the charter for the Neptune Race. Freezer construction continues - fibreglassing it like a madman on the cabin top in the shade of the main. So warm that only about 3-5 min work time before gelling. Must have this at least finished inside so can re-install and hide, and possibly use as ice box, for Neptune race week.
Crossed the Line right on dawn, so Sam now officially a Shellback slept through his transition. Will avoid any ceromonial recognition for him this time as we'll do that in full during next month's Equator Race, although I did dig out the Rum and Coke (for breakfast) as per tradition.
