Shades

And here's a rendering of the shades for the forward deck and salon as well. Easily removable. Carbon poles, so very light. Shades to keep the boat cool in tropical environments while at anchor ...

Shades

... and an additional rendering, freshly in, that shows how side shades can be added for comfort against wind or sun in a very easy manner.

And to complete the whole collection, here's a final one with the shades up for the forward and aft deck ...

It’s amazing how shades lower the interior temperature. With the shades up and good natural ventilation we rarely needed the AC in the tropics. Only time it was needed was the rare occasions we were in a marina.
Nicely done. Personally would put in cross battens to tent the shades on top a bit and keep the fabric under tension. Without those with any kind of breeze they flap a bit which is annoying. Stock battens for main sails would work.

Raymarine Training

Darn, there's SO much one can do with modern plotter and radar and autopilot electronics! Learned a heap. Thanks Raymarine and Aquaplanning!

Recovering from a cold and sour throat ... but great plans and adventures ahead! Coming Wednesday and Thursday we'll sail Salty Pelican, via the North Sea, to Zierikzee. A week later we'll depart on a two week sail to England, where we'll visit (among others) London.

Regards, Edwin.

What makes a well-designed stern a well-designed stern? A deeper dive into boat design, based on my many talks with skippers and NA's. Hope you enjoy the read!

Oostende in Belgium - weather call depending - should be our next stop. Unfortunately, our dynamo isn't working properly, and doing a bad job at charging the batteries. So we'll head to Roompot Marina instead for - hopefully - repairs on early Monday and a delayed leg to Oostende on Monday afternoon.

Regards, Edwin & Veronika.

Trip to the UK by boat!

Woot, woot! Arrived in Dunkirk on the French North Sea coast, after a major 66 Nm+ trip. Took us almost 9 hours, but we catched up with the rest of the group, by cramming two day-trips into one. Tired, but feeling blessed. We had an amazing day, sailing Salty Pelican on the North Sea. Two meter high waves, coming at short intervals, posed a challenge, but more to the autopilot than to us.

Now? Now, it is time for a genever and a beer. Well deserved, I reckon!

Regards, Edwin & Veronika

In Ramsgate, UK! First part of the trip was quite rough with 5 to 6 Bft. Last stint, up the English coast, towards our port of destination, was a breeze with 3 to 4 Bft on the nose.

Enjoying a cigar, when I can!

Regards, Edwin.

We are in Queenburough now. Thames estuary. Tomorrow we'll sail into London for a 3 day stay-over.

Boating was amazing today! Salty Pelican doesn't like waves from the stern/beam too much. Throws her off course a bit, engaging the autopilot a lot, but she loves attacking waves head-on!

Parley at 6 tomorrow morning ... So it's off to bed soon.

Regards, Edwin & Veronika.

NICE!

Not St. Katherine's Docks?

For some reason, I know about the Ropemaker park near Limehouse. Not sure HOW I know it but I do. Make sure you pay a visit. Another thing I know about, but do not know how I know, is to visit The Grapes, The Grapes, Limehouse. It is one of the oldest pubs in London. Dickens was a patron and Gandolf aka, Ian McKellen, is the current owner.

I have no idea how I know these things about places I have never been.

Stay away from White Chapel after dark to avoid the ripper.

Later,
Dan

Seen the Grapes, loved it, and decided we will have beers there! We walked Ropemakers Park when we went over to Canary Warf for dinner at the Argentine restaurant over there. Zinfandel was amazing, 500 grams of steak (medium rare, what else) was great.

Regards, Edwin.
