Wow! Old Melodious is really starting to become a looker! The deck has been painted white and the only traces of the crusty blue paint lies on the bottom of the Cockpit floor. Rufus moved it this week and produced an awesome dogbox, which we're all incredibly stoked about and have confirmed that it's where we'll be found hiding from the sun during plenty of our journey. The portlights are in the process of being replaced to ensure that we have a water-free boat. The storage area, opposite the heads, is almost completed after some extreme carpentry which happened in the late hours of the week. Stoked!
