At the moment I envy anyone who can get out on the water, we are currently splitting our business and selling it off in two chunks, in the meantime we are setting up three new businesses, for the time being I put any spare time I have to modifying Imagine to get ready for our next trip.
Yes but getting my partner to brave the weather at the moment.........well not that easy....have installed a hotwater bottle and working on heating BUT all that aside...the boat was sitting off the trailer so we can stop the never ending battle with rust.It's now back on the newly sandblasted trailer with lots of coats of POR15 etc and then numerous coats of some spray on rust preventetive,will see how long that will last.Currently fitting furling,some sort of lazy jacks,grey water tank & pump,airhead compost toilet,solar panels onto the already fitted frame,3 opening porthole/windows c/w flysreens,extra batteries,have to link my autopilot to the GPS,modify the v berth for more room,larger anchor up front and spare ......so hopefully the Hawkesbury or Myall lakes in October????

Lucky B, sounds like you've got a lot of good stuff (modifications) on the go. Hope you share your information/procedures with us novices. Looking forward to hearing from you.
