Back in the water

First short trip of 2014
Sorry, Iv'e been neglecting the blog lately. First things first; Obelix is back in the water! Now the race is on to get ready for the big summer cruise of 2014. The plan is to head north to Norway. More on both the preparations and the destination later. The last couple of weeks Iv'e been very busy installing the new headsail furler (Alado A2), redoing the wiring, installing the new VHF (Standard Horizon gx2100) and AIS transponder (Digital Yacht AIT2000) and a lot of other projects. I still have a lot on the todo list and only one month to complete them all.

During the six week long summer cruise I'll have access to the internet. Net 1 utilizes the old CDMA network to provide great coverage although at somewhat slow speeds (up to 6 Mbit). This should enable me to do all the posts I haven't had time to.
