Cinderella update February 22
With the hull painted and the decks, re-caulked and sanded the Ipswich team are busy sorting the rigging in preparation for her to come out of the tent and the mast to go up ready for her to be launched.
The decks look really smart with the new caulking and the newly refurbished propeller is an object of beauty.
Cinderella update November 21
Unfortunately our custom built first shelter couldn’t withstand the Ipswich winds so as a plan b we have invested in another Shelterit tent, these things are amazing, heavy duty and provide the perfect shelter for our works. The only issue is with the erecting and dismantling after a job is completed, so this one we have screwed to boards so we should be able to move it whilst built. The roof is due to go on tomorrow as it was too windy today.
Cinderella update October 21
Cinderella is a Sun Odyssey 54DS she was built in 2008, she has come into the Ipswich yard for a major refit. Works are to include new rigging, repairs and repaint of the hull and superstructure and an upgrade of the electronics, deck repairs and re-caulking, and new anchor chain. Her mast was dropped last week and she was lifted out of the water and today we built a tent around her so work’s could commence in shelter.
Her mast is so long it wouldn’t fit in our shed so we had to build an extension!
