I spent the day on the South Coast with Patrick moving Kornog from HYC to her permanent mooring in Emsworth Reach, except it won’t be very permanent as she is due to go to Tim’s yard “Dolphin Quay at Birdham Pool” to have all the insides sorted. Costs are rocketing but best to get it all done and then nothing for 20 years, I hope. A couple of trips ago I took Kornog from HYC, after her launch, to Chichester Marina to have the mast installed. The last picture was of her as she was of her finished with the mast and returmed to HYC for the liferaft and swan neck to be fitted plus some snagging ( calorifier – just needed setting up adjustments, anchor windlass switch – bodged the first time and the gas had stopped workinhg – works fine just my stupidity I fear)
Here she is with the mast and sails on waiting for a few bits and pieces ; the liferaft is just sitting there not fixed.
…and today motoring from HYC to her mooring.
On her mooring. Once her insides are done I will sort the electrics and ensure that we have a GPS and an autotiller. The ones on the boat might even work, I just have to sort out them out, otherwise I will have to buy new.
I shall have to get the topsides painted next year , they are in a poor state. Hopefully I will get her sailing before she goes to Tim’s the first weekend in August.
