Our Fiji Refit!

Having a 4.2m draft makes finding a yard able to lift us tricky!

 

We managed in Vuda Marina in Fiji thanks to the amazing staff who made this possible for us! They even dug us two narrow cyclone pits for our keel and rudder, thanks Vuda!

Even at high tide the channel leading into the basin was too shallow for us, so we tied a huge inflatable tube underneath one side of our hull in order to heel us over to reduce our draft! 

Check out the rest of this challenging manoeuvre...

See how our refit is progressing...

...including removing the mast, re-installing the original coffee grinders, re-installing water ballast and making some comfy double cabins!...

 

We will write more about our refit as it happens on our story page.
