Miles Writes:

Some fotos documenting my F82R . Initial launching in Italy & sailing to Elba.

After completion in Prague (Czech Republic) by the Bukvaj Boat Builders  (Where Quality, Price , &  Service were excellent). I trucked to Bonn (Germany ) put on the nets & after your helpful advice the rigging !

Two weeks later we trucked 1200km  via the Gotthard Tunnel (Switzerland) to the Tuscany coastal harbor of Piombino ( Italy). Launched using a crane & sailed over to the island Elba .

Returning to Piombino we craned again to the trailer & trailered back to Bonn taking 20 hours. All parameters were fulfilled as expected !

Now we are waiting for the next Sailing season!

Best regards

Miles McKelvie
