The rebirth and conversion of a New Zealand fishing boat-and maybe her further adventures. Other boats and observations will happen from time to time.....

Finally re-installed the mizzen mast which has an extention to the exhaust pipe up it.It sort of worked ok before, but not quite right. The mizzen got hot- not enough to bubble the paint but too hot for the hand. So we hardly ever used the mizzen. Also you may recall had a bit of over-heating on the last tow job. All been fixed and new ss heat deflector installed just in case.
