The Naiad Voyages

Mark Austen

2020.05.10 - Five Years Later

Today marks five years since I purchased Naiad and brought her home to Southery. I would have loved to have been able to celebrate somehow, but had to content myself with sitting in the cockpit with a cup of tea and rereading the log of her reconstruction.

I didn't stay outside too long as it was a cold day and the wind was bitter.

Still, it's the thought that counts.


This is the current list of tasks that need to be carried out, or most of them, before Naiad goes back into the water. So far I have completed four of them. Many of the tasks are painting of varnishing and will be done last, the priority tasks are the constructional ones that generate lots of sawdust and such like which you don't want on fresh paint or varnish!
