We are on the home run. People have really come through to help us with getting the boat back into the water after my accident. We are very lucky to have an amazing community around us both online and in Lefkada. Watch as we put the final touches on before launch.

Matt from Sail Ionian and Paul from Hardiman Yacht Services fit our new P-bracket and align the prop shaft. Something that I realise I could never have done without their expertise. It is the start of the season here and these guys are working 14 hour days getting all the charter boats back in the water. Even so they still found time to help me out on what turned out to be far more complicated a job than I imagined. A HUGE shout out to them.

Nicos from Vliho Yacht Club makes spraying on our antifoul look easy and does a fantastic job. Major thanks to the Yacht Club for doing this for free. It really helped us out. I was not looking forward to doing it by hand.

If you are in need of any work on your boat and you are in the area I can strongly recommend all the companies that volunteered their help. The customer service, experience and attention to detail are second to none.
