Fitting Out

The Commodore has been stalking the Ardrossan boatyard photographing Serpent yachts in the process of being fettled. In so doing he has managed to avoid featuring himself but he supplies a picture of his pristine deck sporting a considerable quantity of tubular steel.

Being a luxurious craft, Pondskater is to be found in the comfort of the shed but Martin was not to be seen.
Ataraxia has almost enough holes to fill the Albert Hall and here Steve displays an array of the new seacocks to fit in them.
Things were getting a bit fraught beneath Troikka while the owner struggled  with acres of flaking antifouling, not particularly appreciating the witty encouragement of the Commodore.
Any more fitting out snaps welcome. The messier the better.

ARC Plus!

Peter and Marian are leaving the Clyde on the good ship ‘Exody’ in July for the adventure of a lifetime, firstly in the ARC + transatlantic rally leaving in November from the Canaries via Cape Verde Islands to St Lucia and then in the World ARC rally leaving St Lucia in January 2015. The mostly tropical and non-piratical route will take them through Panama, the Galapagos, Marquesas Islands Tahiti, Fiji, Great Barrier Reef (summer 2015) Darwin, Bali, Cocos Keeling, Reunion, Durban, Cape Town (Xmas 2015) St Helena, Recife in Brazil in time for carnival and back to St Lucia by April 2016. They will be joined by friends and family for most of the legs. Exody is undergoing major refit at Dumbarton - with valued support from Serpent members - and is scheduled to participate in at least one of the two forthcoming musters.
