Your blogger has been trying (but failing miserably) to complete his ‘retirement’ project and sail off into the sunset, she should have been finished some three years ago but that’s another story! We decided to call her Hindsight some two years ago, rather apt methinks considering the various setbacks along the way! Anyway at long last with the majority of the woodwork done apart from a bit more varnishing and more than half of the electrics complete we do see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. As Hindsight is of a traditional look we wanted to keep the cockpit area in keeping with the character of the yacht. So our Raymarine plotter is down below at the nav station but as a concession to easier navigation we are going to duplicate the information on deck via our iPad. It just so happens that Scanstrut has just brought out an excellent waterproof USB charger socket, that will be our power source on deck and to protect our iPad from the weather it will be safely ensconsed in a Lifedge waterproof iPad case which surprise surprise is another excellent Scanstrut product. Below deck on the chart table we are in the process of fitting a Blue Seas double USB port, all of this means that when Jenny and my dream finally turns into reality your blogs will be written whilst hopefully merrily sailing along!
