Sailboat renovation

First mahogany lists in position

It’s been a couple of days since our last update here, but we blame Christmas holidays for that. We have spent some time working on the boat as well but also taking some time off to spend with our families.

One thing we have done during Christmas is to set up the first mahogany lists in the guest cabin.

We painted the vertical plywood strips black in case of gaps between the mahogany lists. The black material behind the mahogany is an insulation material called Armaflex, which we use both as a support for the lists and extra insulation.

Starting to look really beautiful 🙂

We also moved the boat to a protected winter harbor for the coldest months before the ice comes. We will stay in the water for the winter and take Anne-Mon up on land in spring to go over the hull and re-paint it.

Soon it is a new year, 2020, the year we will leave Sweden and start our sailing adventure! 🙂 More about our plans for 2020 in next post.
