A new journey begins

12F08471-7279-4D3E-B871-7E0341ED537D.pngA  working team, consisting of Milton, Gerald and Dawie, arrived this morning in Maastricht to board OCTO  after she spent the winter in T’Bassin, where we left her last year. They found her in good shape and will spend some time adding new keels and doing some maintenance work before setting off to Belguim and France.

There will be many guests coming and going during her travels in the next 3 months, so watch out for our blogs from now on. Gail will join the crew on 15th June after she does a leisurely cruise down the Rhine on a very much bigger boat!

  3. Not sure if this is the right place to send you good wishes for the next leg of Octo’s adventures – I found your blog by chance in my all mail box?

    Must be some telepathy because today Book of the Week is a biography of Leonard Cohen and I thought of emailing you to say hello and remember your daughter’ visit to Octo on her way to the L.C. concert.

    Love to you all, A.

  4. The road – or rather the canal – goes on! More power to the 2 x captains on this next leg and Gail please do keep us in the loop on latest sightings! x

  5. Good luck guys, hope the work is not too hard and that the keels work well. Morty, so glad you are able to do the trip – just take it easy and let Gerald and Dawie do the grafting. XX

  6. Already, already!  Many congratulations on the return of the sailors and ship-builders – great news of the indefatigables and the new man – and very best wishes to all of you for what sounds like a very serious project, from Helga
