Hello everyone, we have been quiet for the past couple of years because of the C thing.  However, its time to prepare ubulukutu for the coming season, we are doing it now so that we can set off quickly in the spring, and yes I could have waited for spring, but then it would have taken three weeks instead of the one now planned when we get here in March.

Here she is with her winter covers on having waited almost 2 years for us to return.  She has a long garden on the bottom and lost of dust on top, but she is dry inside with no mould or smells so we are hopeful that there are not too many issues.

We decided to get a tow to the lift in case the raw water inlets were blocked or the propeller fouled.

Then the big lift to see the extent of the underwater issues.  Maybe not quite as bad as we feared.


We will post the stages of reconditioning on this post as ubulukutu has the biggest service and maintenance of her 8 years, she deserves it.

Once out of the water a long jet wash removed all the long weeds and then she was moved to a stand.
