Photo on day of Torqeedo test

with Isabella and waiting for slipping
photo by Erik Gastellars

Here’s a photo taken by Erik as we were waiting for the slipway to be ready to haul us out about a month ago. On board are Phil from Dragon Song and Claude the Torqeedo man for those tests.

In the foreground is Erik’s beautiful junk rigged dory, Isabella. Check out the sleek timber foremast – unstayed to suit the junk rig. Erik took her out just a few days ago for her first sail and she enjoyed frolicking in Deception Bay.

She’s the same design as Badger that featured in Annie Hill’s Voyaging on a Small Income.
