BUILDING A HARD DODGER Pt 2

With the agreed template in hand, Ton and Tui got to work immediately on fabricating the honeycomb and fiberglass construction…

All was going well until ‘Big Boss’ decided the design looked skewiff. So off with the forward struts and back to the drawing board. It’s going to be a long process!

Meanwhile, we came up with a great excuse for taking a day out of Krabi Boat Lagoon Marina and headed off for a quick trip to Malaysia to renew our Thai visas. The process couldn’t have been simpler, and we hope you enjoy the footage of our drive through southern Thailand.

Back in Krabi, the carpenters worked with the stainless steel team to add strength to the design…

With an appointment that was too important to miss, we sailed off to Koh Lanta, leaving Ton in charge of carpentry and Lek in charge of stainless. Would they be able to get on with the project without us being there? Find out in next week’s episode!

We are going to put together a special Q&A on the dodger because of all the questions and comments our last video prompted, and if it’s successful we plan to do one Q&A per week. So feel free to add your thoughts below.

Without your encouragement we would not be producing regular videos or be able to continue to push and stretch our imaginations, both in terms of creativity and sailing to new destinations.

Thank you, friends!

Peace and fair winds from we three.

Liz, Jamie and Millie
