OUR NEW CATAMARAN – Paint, Windows & Winches
It’s been a while since we’ve given you an update on our new HH44 catamaran and this is a big one! There has been a flurry of activity behind the scenes and we have a few big surprises in the coming weeks. Because…we’re finally on our way to the HH factory! But we’re taking the long route.
The whole factory experience was a lot more in-depth and expansive than we ever anticipated. We have so much footage, we could have made this a one-hour episode! Because we didn’t even get to the design team with their high-performance 3D printers, the training on winch maintenance, or how hatches are made. But that just means we have a few more pearls to share with you later.
But most importantly, the trip was a success, and we feel like we have a from-the-ground-up understanding of the day-to-day equipment we will trust to take us around the world on our sailboat safely. Hopefully, you do too! And I don’t have to tell you how excited we will be to see our new boat’s beautiful, flat, toughened glass windows. Because we still get a slight nervous tick just thinking about re-bedding our old windows.😵💫
As for Curiosity, it is really exciting to see her taking shape. HH is making great progress at the factory and (knock on wood) seems to be moving along smoothly with no major setbacks or surprises. Fingers crossed that everything continues to move forward with no issues. And don’t worry, we’re going to keep the updates coming on the boat and we’ll dive into a lot more detail soon.
This sanding (or fairing) process takes weeks and is an incredible amount of work. Underneath those suits are probably some very shredded gents. I shall give them all a Texas-size hug when we get there.
I am so excited to see those folding transoms I can hardly contain myself! That bit of extra security during big seas is going to have me sleeping like a baby. And those side boarding gates, well grocery loading and stepping onto a dock just got a whole lot easier.
We’re soooo excited about the weeks ahead and know it will fly by in the blink of an eye. Our next stop is in Italy, which involves making a family dream come true and some unique problem-solving for our workshop and navigation areas. So, if you have any travel tips for Tuscany, we would love to hear them!
