I hope you’ve followed the launch via our Facebook & Instagram accounts. We were too busy prior to the launch to update the blog and once we were in the water went straight into ‘cruising mode’ for the holiday period!
WOW - what an amazing Christmas present we had this year with the launch of Camara!!!
Since we launched Christmas Day, we headed straight to one of our favourite anchorages down the harbour - Urquarts Bay. No leaks, motor purring along and the water temperature reading on the depth sounder showing us its warm enough to make the most of life afloat again. Swimming, free diving, snorkelling, kayaking, paddle boarding, kiting, fishing, hiking, fresh fish & scallops - Just pure bliss!!!! Here are some pics:
But after New Years we headed back up the river that Sunday because as much as we could have kept on enjoying life, there is a mast waiting to be put up again along with a few other jobs. Repaint the boom, paint the generator, put the rigging back on the mast, mast wiring and so on. But we’ve already made a good head start so far. The boom is painted, fittings going back on the spreaders and the mast:
Finishing the rig, getting the generator and boom ready, those are our main priorities over the next few weeks. We are getting excited to soon see the mast & rigging go back on!!!
I’ll be posting frequently on our Facebook page & Instagram over the next few weeks, so make sure you follow along. Of course I’ll try and keep the blog updated more frequently again as well with the holidays being over.
On that note - if you’ve missed the launch, here is the video again:
