I don´t want to write how it was for 7 years (think it isn´t interesting and I want you to read it). How was the whole preparing before sailing and leaving England. When Ota became electrician, plumber, carpenter, painter … in two words „Mr Perfect“and of course even me I tried to help…housewife, cook, baker, pastry-cook. And beware of the teak deck – that´s my job to paint the teak. My husband said I´m like taking a drugs, yes, yes I love the smell of the teak oil 😛.
