It has been 5 years now since I was on a sailboat underway. It has actually been 5 years since I have been on any boat underway, as long as you do not count car ferries.
I consciously made a decision when we started the Akupara project that the next time I was sailing, it would be on Akupara.
Sometimes seems like that will never happen, but other times it seems like we are getting closer.
I am also going to sit down soon and add up all of the receipts and update the costs page. Scary thought but it needs to be done. I still reckon we are under our original estimate of $100000.00, so not too bad. A “brand new” 42 year old boat for 100k as opposed to a fully brand new boat for 450k.
Anyway, off to work on Akupara
