A few more pictures taken during my recent visit to South Africa.
All the cut-outs for hatches and windows are ready. A lot of time had to be spent on grinding the welds of the hull. Paper disks have to be used in order not to cut into the steel plates and reduce their strength.
I took some time to check the final position for the winches. All winches are Lewmar self tailing 2-speed winches. The ones most aft are for the main sheet (40 CST), then further forward the primary winches (54 CST) for genoa and spinnaker, then the secondary winches (46 CST) for the staysail sheets, and finally, on the second picture, the winches for halyards and reef lines (40 CST).
