Sailing New Zealand -It’s A Hard Life On The Hardstand EP10

Hardstand Time!
We haul DT out of the water at Norsand Boatyard in Whangarei and begin a week of boat jobs. Some tasks are annual maintenance and some are in preparation for our upcoming passage to Tonga.
Our antifoul will survive another few months, but that doesn’t mean we get to relax!

Engine service, prop and sail drive antifoul, some new stainless steel bits and pieces, anchor chain maintenance and lots of new supplies and toys delivered. A busy, but very productive week.

Once back in the water we head off to the Town Basin Marina in Whangarei to restock the provisions and get ready to welcome the Hegs onboard.
Stay tuned to the end for some hilarious footage of Rob folding his new drone landing mat.
