I’ve been slack with this blog. It’s been such a strange year. Daisy G was repaired, very well, by Traditional Shipwright Services, who are literally next door to my marina. I couldn’t think how I was going to move her there, but they said there was no problem, they would just have her launched and floated around. It took about five minutes. She went back in the water just after the July heatwave, sadly, but I managed to get out a couple of times. We had good weather in September, which was a real boost. Managed to get a good dose of naturist sailing and skinny sea dipping which will set me up for the winter.
Getting Daisy G out proved frustrating. The day she was due to be lifted, there was a storm and the lift had to be postponed. Eventually she was lifted out well into October, which is the latest I have done. She is now secure on the garage, with not a lot of winter work to do. I just need to get on with it.
Here’s to a better year in 2022.
