|On the deck|
An Ariki is not a Narai, of course, so things will be different on our boat, but we really enjoyed the opportunity to explore the interior. And we especially enjoyed the opportunity to talk to Tom, and to stand on the deck and daydream. Piggy has some lovely touches, and we both hope Tiger is as lovely and well cared for in 40 years.
|Nice sliding panels in the galley|
|Testing the berth|
Once we got home, we realized we had many pictures of Piggy details, and not even one of Tom. Oops! Obsessed is maybe a harsh word...
|Between the hulls|
In this between-the hulls picture, you can see the spot where the dinghy nose presses. (We're looking aft in this photo.) Tom's also working out ways to sling the dingy under the deck, between the hulls, for sailing. Really interesting ideas! In the picture below, you'll see the outside-hull addition of a bracket where at one time Tom had a dagger board. The additional tracking the board provided sounds very impressive.
Ready for bottom paint.
