Vega back in the water after an intensive 2 weeks in the boat yard

Well once again Vega is back in the water after an intensive 2 weeks in the boat yard. Since we are on such limited budgets we must do most of the work ourselves so it is one very tough time. This years inspections was good and the boat has another clean bill of health for another year of deliveries. Still in all those 2 weeks cost us almost $5,000. That would have paid for a lot of fuel and food etc. Oh well we still have great hopes that some company will take us under their CSR wing and help out with the running costs. Several very good companies and many private individuals are helping with educational and medical supplies. That part is going nicely now. Where we need the most help is with our yearly running costs. It does us little good to have the boat fully loaded with 15 tons of supplies to deliver if we have no fuel etc.
