The Queen Jane sporting her new bowsprit. All the repairs stemming from the accident in December have been repaired and the boat is back in the water! All we need now is our new bow pulpit (railings) which will be installed very soon!

 

 

 

A shot of the Queen Jane from the dock. Looks as good as new.

 

 

 

 

The Queen Jane's foredeck. All better now (see December photo gallery for te "before" photos).

 

 

 

 

Bow hardware on the Queen Jane all had to be removed and re-installed after repairs. We took the opportunity to shine everything up before putting it all back. Only the 2 inner "chafe plates" are new.

 

 

 

 

The S/V Renegade (our next door neighbor) with Paul and Natalie aboard. Renegade hails from Pennsylvania. We first met Paul and Natalie in Nuku Hiva back in May of last year. We saw them again many times last season at a variety of islands.
