Repairs before Atlantic Crossing

Anti-fouling paint is a special coating that is applied to the hull of a ship. The coating is used to slow down the growth of marine organisms such as barnacles, slime, algae and mossy weed. However, disappointingly, after three months in Puerto Calero, Lanzarote, our boat had to be taken out of the water and the hull had to be scrubbed.

More than that two days of work was needed to clean the hull, as shown on the right side of the picture. Our friends Frank, Ivan and Stefan helped Fred and me to do the job.



Additional, some sail and rigg improvements were done by Fred.

…if you ever pass the Tobago Island – you should stop by Jemma’s Tree-Restaurant.

It’s unique!

You have a directly view at Bird Island, while taking the meal.

And this, i swear – is 100 percent authentic ‘creole’… loved it.

…furthermore, the island is very safe.

I rent a private driver for a whole Island trip.

The nature is completely untouched – for example englishman bay!

…Imagine: 80% of the island’s natural reserve.

Let me know, if you want know more…
