Tintamarre tour

This is where we live

Tintamarre is a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 44i.

The first set of pictures shows her as she was after the Sunsail phase out programme had been completed but before we started to convert her into our home.

This next picture shows the saloon with the new seat cushions and pictures of our family and where we live in the UK as she is today,

Most of the changes we have made have been under the skin, removing as many Sunsail bodges as possible.  A new engine, watermaker, new navigation systems a fridge, solar panels, a wind generator and a freezer to name but a few.   We will be writing about some of the technical updates we have done in future posts.

We have kept all four cabins but the forward starboard cabin is entirely given over to storage of large items such as bicycles and an inflatable kayak as well as most of the electrical, engine and plumbing spares we are now carrying.

Since moving in we have installed and trained our most reliable crew member (Robbie the Hydrovane) to sail us through some pretty rough seas.  Here she is on a jetty in Roatan, showing off the hydrovane offset to allow us to continue using the sugar scoop as an entry and exit platform.

and in action on route to San Andreas in a near gale, we didn't have the camera out for the nighttime gales...
