I suppose it may appear that all we have to do is wait but there does seem to be a million things to do in the mean time.
We are busy accumulating tools of every description as well as consumables such as disposable gloves and ice-cream type containers (would you believe about 800 needed?). We have also obtained items such as engine beds, forebeam and will shortly be ordering the FGI fibreglass and adhesive kit including 200 litres of resin!
Our intention is to obtain most of the gear for “lock up” prior to assembly, so Lewmar hatches and glass windows are also on the shopping list. Meanwhile all sorts of homework goes on: cable or hydraulic steering, 12 volt wiring options and so on.
