Having been away for a couple of weeks we returned yesterday to find that ACHERNAR was launched last Monday and is now afloat in Glascote Basin. Steve Hudson has taken some photos for us as we were unable to be there. The process of battening out has begun and the intention is for the spray foam insulation to be applied later this week or early next week. We have also added to the specification the requirement for navigation lights to be installed. The next step is The Crick Boat Show where we intend to view lots of boats to see if we wish to make any small adjustments. On the shopping list is Smartguage and a seagull water purifier. We will also be checking out solar charging systems and satellite tv.
