Very quick work by the crew of Jover Yachts fitting red lighting to the wheelhouse. This, added to the black and brass with other electronical updates has made the lower helm a capable bridge with elegance.
Mother -a- board, was the best opportunity to shoot material relating to her concerts in America and her book titles. It's a cabin feature made on TandEadapt. Produced by Squint Koros UK.
Someone asked if this was a humble act. I told them: it was a precaution to preserve my lower cabins. It felt like a dignified confession, so my lower parts still humble me. They were quite happy.
Corrosion left the taps in the head clogged and the cold water tap just stopped running. Both taps have been replaced. It was a Tap-as only the Spanish could fix. Thanks Jover Yachts.
Reverend Elizabeth Pemberton/Mitchell, lead singer of Boney M and my mother, graces this humble vessel. I promulgate that respect for the power mothers-a-board can process will be seen. In memory of all good mothers here and gone. May our fathers also be blessed.
Heeps of storage on this trawler. Accessing the compartments under the L shape seating area, I decided to examin the double berth it folds into as well. It's a great cosy cabin for the crew members to sleep in after a long day passage making. All that's needed here is a luxurios throw and some sheets and we're laid out happy and home.
The older helm had protruding parts and I felt it needed to be styled to a more accommodating finish as it's now being transformed into a wheelhouse. The nautical star was designed by me to especially blend in the mixes of black and brown. I used this material and glossy look to bring the lower helm into a more contemporary design style. I really don't want to leave it already.
27knot winds sent a Belgian yacht owner too speedily mooring into the neighbouring berth. He pressed against our side with high force and ripped off the wood beam under the fender.
An easy mistake to make. Always check the Beaufort scale before leaving your pontoon. Ironically a marinara and I stepped out to help him berth. Some things can't be avoided. I consider us fortunate the winds did not cause worse damage. The insurance can take care of this. Crashing into the side of TandEadapt was a contingency is all.
The design of these guards were purposed for aesthetic and practicality. They will stop rope rubbing lines into the wood and the look nice. We'll feed no more loose lines.

Many of you wondering why Stephene is written on the bow top sides of TandEadapt are not mad. The previous owner gave the boat this name. We changed it on the day we purchased it to, TandEadapt, after, Thomas and Elizabeth Pemberton, my folks. The adapt part is all about me.
So the plan is: clean topsides like Spindrift, maybe with my trademark symbol. Towards the stern, where Spindrift has a brown line, TandEadapt will have a black line, to match her tinted windows. The logo TandEadapt will be painted on her transom.
This should happen during the months in 2016/17 when she is out of the water for treating Osmosis and antifouling.
