Boat Maintenance and Homeschooling - The Sequel

Most of time in New Zealand has been taken by boat maintenance and home schooling.  Neither is conducive to photos or at least we do not some to take many pictures of either ...

After the photos there is an output from my maintenance spreadsheet showing the tasks conducted from our arrival in New Zealand in December until now.  The spreadsheet is perhaps only interesting reading for the real boat-geeks...


Precise maintenance on the now deceased inverter/charger

On our way to an early morning haulout.

Hauling out


Not all bad being in the boat yard - lots of kid boats !
Computer class - Victoria takes top prize for your morse code program.  You can just see her robot blinking on the right.

Johnathan working on his program with his friend Dillion.


Back into the bilge

Oh, I love plumbing
Always a comfortable place to work

Not the Health and Safety recommended approach

Aluminum and steel not playing well together.  I neglected to take a picture after the acid etching, wire brushing, epoxy primer, epoxy filler, and an insulating and sealing layer ... 

Benjamin is such a big help

Working with Grammpy.


Stitching and looking stylish at the same time.
Old (3 years) Magma BBQ

New Magma BBQ - Our old one deteriorated so bad Magma gave us 50% off a new one (but at NZ prices so about the same as full price in Canada.  Groan)


EMI issues with the Pactor modem solved thanks to Doug's advice.

Overhauled Injection Pump - it even works without leaking diesel everywhere
Before - After three months in the Town Basin.  The prop was pristine when we left Minerva Reef in November.

After shots ... new propspeed paint on the prop and shaft.

Luxury ... the infill between the bimini and dodger gives a bit more living space during the frequent rains here.

Oh, where did I put my anchor ... should be easier to find next season when freediving to check its holding.


Look Daddy ! I am reorgansing your tools !

New lifeline netting and yet more diapers.

Rig inspection time and repairs to the top of the furler
Cyclone Pam (the cyclone not my mother who also came to visit but was helpful) came to visit which was not helpful
Not helpful but not as big of a deal as it could have been,

Paddling out to check on a friend's boat during the start of the storm,

Johnathan putting the new zincs on,

Liz's Dad came out to help fix things (and to visit).

Rig inspection.
