Here is our 'sun shade', a pole binimi zipped to the back of our spray hood and clipped to the back stay.  We have clear covers on the hood to stop the sand destroying them, but they also provide more shade.  It was 43 degrees in this picture, and 60 % humidity.
 
 
 
 
Here is one of our grab rails.  I saw them first on another 385 in the Hmble and they look as though they should be there.  I would have liked them on the delivery journey from Germany whan it got a bit windy.
 
 
Here is my uprated back stay adjuster.  We have more purchace and the strop gets the cleat far enough from the seat.  I found the original was too close to get the line out of the cleat when under load.  Also the line is long enough to reach the main winch, if I need the additional grunt.
 
You can also see my solid 'life lines' above the bathing platform.  The clip to the same place as the original lines, and privide a better back rest and a more secure feeling.

This is our 'tent'  It also zips to the spray hood and is clipped and strapped to the coamings and transom.
 

The idea is to keep the sand out of the cockpit, winches, wheels and so on.  It has two boom lifts to give enough height to sit under it (when we move the boat back to the med/north sea) and it has 6 clears with roll up covers.

 

You can just see the Elvestrom jib sock.  We didn't bother with UV strips because they dont last long here.

Mark & Catherine,
 
I notice from your photos that your marina seems to have lots of vacant berths or are a lot of the boats out being used? Are costs to live and berth your boat in Dubai expensive?

Hi Mark,
do you have the FCL performance sails ?  Your lazy jack and the mast hood seem to fit perfectly!
Congratulations, the boat looks great

Hi Wayne, 
 
Many boats had moved for a couple of months because the power went off on this section, back on last week just as we arrived.  As people come back from their summer holidays the boats will move back.
 
Cost is about 5 K GBP or 7.5K AUD per year including water electricity and free ice, which I think is a litle expensive but could be a lot worse.
 
Hi Frank, Yes I have FCL sails.  Ill have a look on the bag to see if it is a Hanse one or not.  I cant remember whether it was UK sourced and shipped to teh yard or whether it came from the yard.

Mark & Catherine,
 
Your bobstay looks substantial. Who fitted this for you- your dealer? I gather from your previous posts your dealer was Inspiration Marine? Do you remember what was the cost of your bobstay. We want to fit a bobstay to our boat when we pick it up mid next year.

Hi Wayne,
 
yes you are right, my dealer was Inspiration Marine - can't recommend them enough thay have been great, even through the difficult bits.  They use a local (to them) firm run by a couple of russians for all their stainless work, like the grab handles and the rear rails.  The bobstay is HUGE, the eyes were welded on in Hamble point marina, the rest came in a box and I fitted it myself the other day.  Total cost 264 pound so just less than 400 dollars.
 
 
And Frank,
 
I looked at the sail bag, and ithas a wendle and ross sticker, which is the chandlery next to the Hanse yard.  I dont know if all Hanse bags are made by them, but I suppose its reasonable guess since they are next door.

Great photos Mark! She's a beauty!

Have you taken any of the inside you can show?

Really like the handhelds in front of the wheels. You're totally right they look like they've been fitted as standard.

All the best,
Simon
