Episode 126 Since being stuck in Lock down since the end of March, we used the first couple of weeks to do absolutely nothing... we got so bored and fidgety we decided why not finish all the boat projects left to do now so once the travel ban is lifted we can go do the sight seeing we wanted.. so that's exactly what we did.. First job was to change our dinghy outboards handle.. it took way longer than expected and we had a good laugh at ourselves.. but it's done. Second was to finish up our lazy jack system and do it properly the way we wanted to with the right materials. Thirdly mark up our anchor and then bolt in our pad eyes to run our new system for our spinnaker. We also managed to get some splicing done to make soft shackles. I rate it was a good couple of tasks off our lists... next week... the work continues. See ya next week!!

So we finally got the energy and time to compile our whole yacht rebuild into a meer 7 minutes.. Can you believe it.. I wish it actually just took us 7 minutes to complete this project.. 😂 The before and afters are obviously also included so that it can be somewhat satisfactory to the eye because let me tell you it wasn't for us. 😜 Thanks for the support to those who have followed along with her from the stripping out days, it was a killer but we got through it.. Then to the rebuilding of all our floors and cabinetry.. that was grueling.. The epoxy and paint in our hair.. That was painful.. but she's done & we are ready to rock and roll See ya next week!!

Episode 113 Ricky has been working on another beautiful 50ft Tag Catamaran that has been featured before in our previous videos; it was an ideal time to get some work done to help pay off our engines. We also take her out for another motor sail to test out the engines & because Ricky has been to busy to help me put them up. We also hoist our flag up high 😉🤣 Oh... have I also mentioned.. I'm the pigeon whisperer 🐦😋 See ya next week!!

E.P 112 So it's our first week living aboard Lady Africa on the water & it definitely has been taking some getting use to. Besides the rocking to sleep, I have had to get used to all the sounds of the ocean and barnacles around me.. We get started on finishing up a few tasks we have left such as our horseshoe life rings, connecting up our deck shower and deck wash, Ricky climbs up the mast to fix up our VHF connection. Install our transducer (thankfully we didn't sink the boat) We obviously sort out some of our fishing gear & Ricky goes for his first surfing lesson... He didn't manage to convince me to get him a board.. maybe I'll let him have another go at it. 🤣😉 See ya next week!!

Ep 111 We took her out for the first time & man I thought the boat launch would be emotional. What an amazing day. The engines were running like a dream, we anchored off the pierre and swam, put out our fishing rods and caught some tuna. Went into the fog to test our radar and to top it all off a huge pod of dolphins came by on the way back to the marina. It was all in all an epic day! As well as my very talented friend Ryan Graaf's beautiful composing skills came in play on the first song in this episode so be sure to give him some mad love! See ya next week!!
