The Memoirs of Dora the Explorer – Week 2

Posted: 13 February 2013 by Lou Barden in Memoirs of Dora

And so it began on 11th June 2008 having traveled by fast cat, big ferry and bus with a few hours break at a destination some of you may recognise….


We finally arrived at the boat yard where Biba had been sitting on the hard for 5 years.


Skipper Jim decided he did not like the wind generator but would not recommend using your head to remove blades !! Particularly when they are spinning !!!


It became quite clear  that no one had

WOBBLE’d the engine for some time


The tool kit left a little to be desired !!


And the Ensign and Horseshoe buoy just did not make the ‘Shipshape and Bristol fashion’ grade !!


Understandably the decision to launch and go was delayed and a week of hard work started to get Biba into a sailable condition

Cowes !
