Leatherman Tim Stats on Historic Vessel Vega

Tim Stats, who is an architect in his other life, joined us in Singapore through all the fun of the Singapore Ambassadors Cup and the Raja Muda International Regatta up to Langkawi. Some how Tim was roped into doing leather work covering the square sail sheets and tacks so they would no longer bang on the rail spoiling the varnish work. Well for a man who had never tried leather work before he did a great job. Thanks Tim for all the help, ideas, and late night anchor watches. Many of the pictures below are by Tim.

      That was a tough few weeks but Tim stuck it out and we are really glad he did as the lovely work shows. What does not show was all the anchor watches we had to do and hauling that big anchor by hand. I am awaiting the repaired anchor winch right now. If DHL will ever get off their fat bottoms and deliver it. 3 day delivery is now almost 2 weeks!
