We're so happy to be back at the boat after the Annapolis Boat Show, and putting ourselves to work so that one day we can have a fancy (and completed!!) boat, just like the ones we saw in the show.
While we were away, a bunch of new build supplies were delivered to us, including something that has Matt completely geeked - flush seacocks from Forespar!!
Now, is it necessary for us to have seacocks that are flush to the hull, instead of the typical mushroom style head? No. Will we gain a noticeable amount of speed? No. Does it require extra work from us to install these? Yes.
But even with all of that in mind, Matt just thought the idea of them was too cool to pass up. So follow along in this week's episode where he explains *why* he is so excited about this product, and what it takes to install one on our new catamaran.
And, make sure to stay tuned to the second half of the episode where a new group of names goes up on the Hull of Fame!!
We hope you enjoy.
Much love from Annapolis!
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
