Harmony is almost ready for the water. On Monday the crane arrives at 8.30. The boat has had her through hulls sorted, Dave spent four days sorting the electrics, she has been anti-fouled, fuel tank drained, engine started. Headlinings are back up On sunday I will put the sails on ready for the next day. Costs so far are Littlehampton Storage – £500 Crane in £75 Boat gubbins and unguents – £150 Insurance £80 Mileage – six trips to Littlehampton – usually 360 miles each time including Baucking to Littlehampton and commuting between Littlehampton and Hayling Island. call it 2000 miles – four tanks of fuel at £50 a tank. Bottles of booze as gifts for people who have helped – £100 This week I have to pay £400 for the pontoon in Hayling island and £60 for a Chichester harbour license. Digging deep and five weeks work – but getting there. Tuesday high tide Bill and I will sail her around to Chichester Harbour to get to the harbour entrance at low tide dusk. Windgurur says 20 mph on the nose… bumma We will then bounce up the harbour with the incoming tide. At some stage we will pick up a mooring and then wait until ten when we can get her onto one of the pontoons at the Hayling Island Yacht Co It will be a good fun.
So if anyone on here knows the harbour entrance well and fancies a day on Harmony we will be leaving Littlehampton at about 11.00 on tuesday and bumping to the pontoon at HYC at about 11 tuesday evening
