The day is finally here Matahari is ready for getting back in the water and off the hard top, and we are biting our nails watching it all.
After reading in the newspaper about a sailboat that got wrecked while lifting at another boatyard nearby, it was quite thrilling to watch our boat being lifted up in the air and put on the water.
As we have changed all the through hulls we were also quite nervous about leakage in any of the pipes or faucets.
Luckily everything went well and Matahari did not spring a leak, we still have a few more things to finish and clean before we are ready for our long journey, but at least she is floating and that feels good!
Our new AIS is now active and you can see where we sail in realtime.
Just go to:
