Hi, I’m Kae and I live with my husband Captain Kev aboard our little ship Tamaha, a 30 ft Morris Griffiths Waterwitch. We have been working hard to return her to her former 1960’s glory and enjoyed it so much, we’ve decided to do it all over again and have recently bought a 35 foot Jura Class Colvic Watson motor sailor project.
From knowing little about yachts – except for sipping wine, between pulling on ropes, while sailing in Table Bay – to finding ourselves owning two that needed lots of TLC, has indeed made for an interesting time of accelerated learning.
Tamaha has gone from a tatty old boat to a beautiful little ship. She is also a warm and cosy home, fitted with a log burner for those cold winter nights. The Phoneix of Jura has yet to rise from the ashes but we expect to have a lot more living accommodating once she has. This latest project will start in early 2017.
The blog was originally conceived to document our journey to restore, live and work-aboard with the intention of sharing our experience and learnings with others considering doing the same.
It tends to meaner along from one thing to the next but I am trying to categories each post.
I hope you
