In the home harbor the masts were taken off and stored on land. After that was done we lay the ship into its new place in the harbour (with some help of our friends).
From August 6, till the August 8 we went from Dinteloort (Holland) to Huizen (Holland). First two days together with my father. Last day we went alone. There was some serious engine trouble along the way and the masts almost crashed from the ship into the water (hard winds and high waves), but all in all we had a great time!
On August 6, the ship went into the water and we started the engine for the first time. We also removed the masts so we can work on them in our home port.
The hull of the ship was perfectly intact, so we repainted the hull with antifouling, brushed her off a little and did some minor repairs with polyester filler
On the July 23, we went to inspect the formosa 37. She was kind of dirty and leaking on the inside, but we liked the ship immediately and decided to buy her then and there.
