Narrative accompanying our 2023 pictures above - Starting at the top left-hand corner...

As in 2022, the year started with Ngahue IV still being stored on land in the boat hall of Yachtservice Van Swaay in Bruinisse. And like 2022 the plan was that after returning to the water, Ngahue IV would return to Nieuwpoort via the Faeroes. The trip hadn't quite worked out in 2022, but with that experience under our belt we hoped for success in 2023. A dark and gloomy Danish television fictional series on crime in the Faeroes was an extra inducement to go and admire the scenery... But before then, there's still a lot of maintenance to be done to the boat!

In 2022, our Force 10 oven suddenly erupted in flames, so, given its age and use, we decided to replace it. A new one has been installed: much the same as the old one, but cleaner and this one isn't missing the plastic cover of the locking mechanism. To avoid nasty scratches, we used a champagne cork instead of the plastic cover...New hoses, regulator and gasbottle holder have been installed too and the gaslocker itself slightly improved with the rubber mat not blocking the water exit!
