We returned to Trinidad on October 15 and exactly two months later, on December 15, we have put Curare back in her proper place - floating in the ocean. It's been two long months of hard labour, frustrations, sweat, dust and a certain amount of pride but we're mostly done now. The remaining tasks are the ones we always do such as getting the water maker going, stowing all of our things, putting on fuel and provisioning.
Curare is sitting pretty on her new water line, the boot stripe is an elegant feature, the topsides paint looks great and all of the new bits and pieces fit well and seem to function properly. We're very happy with all of the work that was done and our many dealings with the local contractors.
We're looking forward to some great Caribbean sailing over the next few months. If you happen to be in the area make sure to stop by and say hello.
