3 May: Oboe’s 2013 mini-refit complete

Posted from Olbia, Sardinia, Italy.

Two weeks of hard work and Oboe is beginning to gleam. David and I have spent many hours down in the depths of the bilge and deep in lockers replacing and renewing plumbing and electrics, servicing the Volvo auxiliary engine, the generator and water-maker. Sanding and varnishing was a challenge due to humidity and there’s still more to be done, but we did get a few days sailing in and combined this with meeting up with Fabio, a genuinely lovely guy and a local dive master, who spend a couple of hours working under the hull, scraping off the winter growth and replacing sacrificial anodes. ¬†Certainly saved me a load when compared with a haul out and anti foul!
