Almost ready for the first “splash” of Aluaka, the Stadtship 54Ac. The carpenters have done a good job, not always easy. The major difficult they had, was to think how to make all the panels easy to disassembly and to bend the ceiling of the round shaped pilot house.
Most of the visitors on board don’t understand that the floor is made in rubber with wood pattern. We say that is only rubber nobody believe us. Nice!

We had the bad surprise that there was a missing weld on the day tank , the only one not tested (the Murphy ‘s law) and Milan our proud welder fix it. Hope no more surprise like this.

The Ce certificate is almost ready and finally we find the way to weld the keel in-house and transport the boat with 5 m height from the street, thank to Abdon Pedretti. The yard in Chioggia (venice) has been booked for June. We don’t know now for the holiday, sailing long the Croatian coast or straight to grece after the final boat tuning.
