It has been a cold spring but it feels wounderful at last to have water under the keel:
Now it is official the sailing season has started (without mast though). Next weekend we will put on the mast and do the reggin.
I copied the GD28 logo and blue print from an old brochure and made it in to vector grafic. Now dad and I got a fine new uniform :0)
The mast is nearly ready to get back on Teist. Hempel’s mast oil really makes a difference:
After some days with really poor weather. We were finally able to paint the hull of Teist. The only thing we need now is the mast. Polishing and fixing the top lantern and we are ready :0)
Niels has spent all day polishing Teist’s freeboard and she is all shini. Next weekend it is time to paint the hull in the nice red Hempel color and install the new tiller.
Spring is getting closer and we are really looking forward to get Teist in the water. Next saturday the plan is to wash her down and get rid of the boat cover.
Testing and measuring that everything fits with the new tillerpilot from SimRad. As far as I know the only tillerpilot that supports the NMEA2000 network via SimNet join and cable (Palsby Part number T8318 and T8328) connected directly to the NMEA2000 drop cable. That will say without an interface!
My dad and I had a great day at the Boat Show in Fredericia. Finding out all about installing the NMEA2000 network in Teist. We visited the Furuno stand getting great advices on how to deal with supporting both NMEA2000 and 0183 network at the same time. I will write about the NMEA2000 project under Ongoing projects.

Leo and I went down to Teist today to collect all the messeruements we need before ordering a new tillerpilot. I hope that we can get a good bargain at the Boat Show on Sunday.
