For almost two months now Sidewinder and crew have been on the hard in the Dockland 5 boat yard which is in Whangarei, on the North Island of New Zealand We have given her a bit of a face lift along with some much needed routine maintenance. I won't get into the details right now but will show you a few photos of work in progress as well of some shots of friends and family taken while Suzi was home visiting in the states and while Suzi's cousin Billy and his wife Laura were vacationing here in New Zealand. It has been hard for us to get back into the blog-creating groove but we promise to do better from now on. So, welcome back and enjoy -
