The Toroa needed new antifouling the Hempel was after one year not working anymore. The yard in Alges was the right place to do this they gave us a fixed price for the hole job without time restrictions. It was only a few hundred euro’s more and because we had a lot of other jobs we decided to let the yard do de job. Karin took this time for a visit to the Netherlands so me and the cats stay to do the jobs.
Gio was smart to clim the ladder up and down so he had a good time in the yard. Woezel stood mental with me to check the electrical system.
The – from the system was connected straight to the ship hull and this will corrodes the aluminium so this was a real master mind play. Had to isolate all antennas, engine, generator and electrical winch.
After a week we got company from the Wings who needed also some maintenance.
3 weeks of puzzling then we had an acceptable resistant between our system and the hull. The Toroa and the Wings could launched. A short stop in Oeiras to do the shopping for the trip to Madeira.
