På plats i hemmahamnen

Igår seglade vi ner till Skärhamn. Fick hjälp av kamrat från SSRS - kändes tryggt. Allt fungerade jättebra och nu ser vi fram mot säsongen 2017.

More to maintain. She will be as new - 10 years younger.....

There were a few things more to do. Two of the cooling compressors for the fridge ( no 3 and 4) needed some maintenance. To search for leaks some minor components of the deck needed to be moved. 

The spinnaker boom also needed a new fitting and they found the only one left in Stockholm - new spare parts are not produced anymore.  Main motor has also been overhauled and tested at max power without any problems with smoke or overheating.

Almost ready for the season

Yesterday Charlotte looked like this. Today the mast is down again due to some bearing trouble in the mast furlex. It has to be overhauled at Seldén factory. Probably no sailing next week. We are glad the problem was discovered now and not at sea. There have been some furlex problems with other HR62’s so if you find som round steel things on deck, around 8mm in diameter - they can origin from your mast furlex. 

This summer our plan so far is Shetland Islands in July. But before we will do some shorter trips. Hopefully starting the season within a week.
