One interior addition this year was to make and install a small rack for the tea and coffee making materials. It was an interesting exercise in spiling to get the components to match the compound curves of the hull. The piece of foam is to stop it all going walk about while being towed to Poole. Not sure if it will be needed when sailing.
I launched Margherita into Poole Harbour on May 6th, which was warm and sunny. My first trip out was over the weekend of 13-16 May. Three cold nights on board, huddled in my sleeping bag with most of my clothes on. I did get some good sails though, and bedded everything into place ready for the season. Here are a few pictures taken while moored at Shiptall point in Poole Harbour.
