    Just back from three weeks of refit work and general maintenance on Oboe, with the help of Dave Whittaker, master deck scrubber and mast climber. Thanks Dave! Oboe is gleaming again both above and below the waterline. Our friend Fabio dived in 16 degree waters for 2 hours replacing anodes, cleaning the prop and scraping Oboe’s bottom too!

    Next stop Licata, Sicily and the start of a new season in a new cruising area. Nigel and Gill. X
