I'll be in the uk in april, I would love to come and see your boat.
so sorry to hear you are not well, I hope everything goes well. I will certainly come past your boat to compare. Thanks and good luck.
I havent heard anything from you for for a while, I hope every thing is ok....
The bloke who originaly built our Tangaroa turned up on Lipsi this summer, a complete coincidence, he had no idea it was here. He said his eye fell on it as soon as he entered the harbor (in his huge plastic mono-hull Tut tut). He told me that he thought it looked in exelent shape, that the sails were the originals (ehm, hopefully the wallet will stretch to new ones next year!). And the best bit was when I asked him what damage he thought had happened to the mast and if he thought I should replace it (if you rememeber the discussions about the bend in it). He gave me such a look of horror, he said that he had paid a lot of money for the mast and it was designed specialy with the bend and it was the reason that the boat was so fast, he said that he got 15 knots out of her on a regular basis! So I'm quite happy that we didn't junk it as suggested!! I got the blokes e-mail address but I must have written it wrong as I have tried sending e-mails but they all come back.
My dad is planning to come again this year, hopefully early Septmeber, for our second round of sailing lessons.
