She looks great! As I mentioned earlier the N47 is in our opinion the best Nordhavn built. She offers so much in a manageable package. Keep us posted on your journeys. Did you join the Nordhavn Owners site?

Thanks! We also think it's the best one for interior space for the size, except for the 120 it seems to have a lot of room! Will keep y'all updated. We now having sat tv installed. We went for an M5 by KVH because it aesthetically fit and had the range we wanted. We also just replaced one of the salon AC's. Were planning on doing a month+ long trip through the Bahamas starting in late April early June. I'll make a thread for that trip and keep y'all posted as long as there's wifi.

Oliver, sign on to Bahamas WIMAX or Out Island Internet (OII), and you will have internet near most harbors.

Yeah I noticed that when we were in the Abaco's. We used WiMAX which seems readily available every where we moored.

As I recall GB had a very similar color.

Thats not green, just white gelcoat with added color from the glare of the overhead lights.

I think you will be impressed with your Rocna. We have a 33 on our Nordic Tugs 42 and find it sets quickly, holds well, and doesn't foul. When you retrieve it though, it likes to present you with a good sampling of the bottom material.

Holy smokes, Oliver. If that is a standard pallet it's sitting on it should hold the QE II.

Yep it's a full sized pallet to give you an idea of scale. Getting it on the boat should be interesting.

How was the stream?

Forecast was 4-6 which doesn't sound too bad...but I gotta think you are one of the few that would shove of with greater than 15 knots winds out of the northwest forecast.

Wasn't too bad, just a little rolly.

Here's a link to the pics from today. (81 to be exact)

Couple things to note:

- We used the dink for the first time and the POS Honda let us down (know for that), so we'll be re-powering with an E-tec.
-The pictures of the empty lot is where my uncle is building a house, and the pictures of the green house is what it'll look like when done.
- It was FLAT calm, sheet of glass today.
- Oh and I don't know who took the pictures of the captain sleeping.
- Enjoy the pics!
- Also we've had relatively good WiFi from the marina next too us which made possible uploading all those pics.
