So the winter season is well and truly here, but that doesn’t mean that the Project team are packing up and enduring the winter months in front of a nice log fire (We wish!). Instead we have turned our attention to the ‘To Do List’
Despite the snow flurries and gales the team are managing to plough their way through with 3 of the big jobs in the process of getting struck off. In 1 weekend the team managed to remove the starboard rudder, remove the starboard keel ram and take out the forestay loadcell. All items are having an overhaul before being refitted and turning our attention to items a little further down the list.
Maybe when the deck thaws out a little more we can move onto some of the rigging! But for now we are very thankful that the skippers #1 job before the winter season was completed – The installation of a Webasto heater!
We’ve found a few images to show you how!
Here is a time lapse of Monster Project being built for the 2008/09 Volvo Ocean Race by Green Marine in Lymington. Cue overly dramatic music!
So this weekend saw a close to our sailing diary on board Monster Project for 2012. But it also saw us opening a new larger diary ready for the 2013 season ahead!
The crew celebrated with a few festivities of mulled wine and mince pies, and discussed the rapidly approaching 2013 season.
It’s shaping up to be a good one, We can’t wait to have you all on board, its not going to be a season to miss!
