A big day today with the initial launch of Maimonde, sadly the owner Howard couldn’t be here due to lockdown restrictions. It’s always a nerve wracking moment to check the engines work, the steering works and she floats! It’s quite normal for wooden boats to take on water if they have been dried out, you just need to wait a few days for the planking to swell. We decided however to pop her back out and make a few minor adjustments on land before launching her again tomorrow.
Delighted to announce Rummer has been nominated for a Classic Boat Award in the Restored Sailing vessel category to vote for her head to https://awards.classicboat.co.uk
