Service works on S/y Naneux in Tenerife 2022

First, second and third service trip in 2022

This is the full story with pics, what can happen and how to manage with the reparations

S/y Naneux service works and repairing the underwater body at the Marina Yard

After the good work something went totally wrong in finishing this great task? Marina drydock should never allow this kind of mistakes to happen.

All seacocks left open against all the insurance rules. Sliding door in bridge deck fully open. Three portlights in the cabins left open for the rainwater to flow in.

Here you can see the results of total neglecting the fulfilling the whole work.

The first repair trip after the bottom renovation was a total shock when arriving to the boat


New lock to the main passageway door on bridge deck is ordered from France. Repairing the damages of burglary. New battery and new charging cables to the pier. New fenders as replacements for the damaged ones

Lots of damages due to the open portlights. Rain water had entered in many places. Dirt was every where. Nav instruments where also damaged due to water entering the cable inlets and junction boxes.

Engine had been started with the seacock closed, impeller rubber and other particles had blogged the exhaust elbow. New elbow has been ordered from Volvo.

Aft cabin interior textiles are totally removed and are waiting for replacements. A lot of trouble and costs caused of total carelessness in finishing the service works.

We hope the service work of the bottom of S/y Naneux is properly done.

The repair works of the hull itself are done good, we hope so. Then somebody ruins the whole work. I do not know why the main entrance is totally open, three seacocks are left also open. Rain water comes in from the open portlights and makes damages. The engine has been started with closed valve causing blockage of the exhaust elbow. The lock in the main entrance is broken and the Volvo engine key has vanished?

The Marina has not yet answered anything to us. Let see what happens

After the first trip we leave our precious Naneux. Cleaning has been done thoroughly

Today after the second repair trip in September, I know a lot more what happened.

We know now, after discussing with the harbour office and to the mechanic who is partly responsible. The boat had collided with another when moved back to the box. Two stanchions had been bent and the feet broke. A big scrape on port side of the hull. 

Someone had been forcing his way into the boat, living and and causing a big mess.

We made a contract with the Marina and the mechanics that the Marina hoists Naneux once more on the hard and we have 10 days of payed work time to repair the damages. All the parts we bought to the damages is payed from us and we try to agree the matter with the insurance company. 

This is how S/y Naneux looks after the second service trip. Now much better almost ready for the Atlantic . We change the shrouds on next service trip and polish the hull. And of course study the bottom, new antifouling, etc.

More works inside the hull

Checking the electronic chart systems and sailing computers etc.

The boat Atlantic Navigator is one step nearer the sea

Heavy weather harnesses are ready
Sail bin is also ready

We still had a few moments to enjoy Canarian warmth and good meals

Gourmet dinners in Casa Marina and on the dinette of Atlantic Navigator

I got sad of Word Press new “on the go” publishing system, also meant for Android phones and tabs. The simple Story post publishing just won’t work, bad and sad.

It’s not so nice to have your laptop on your knees all the time in order to post simple feelings to your friends. Now I make a post with the traditional way because new methods fail.

Easter dinner for two. Crown Roast made in Römer Topf, slowly cooked with 160 degrees temperature, warm veggies and roasted peppers with homemade mashed potatoes. Good red wine with crispy water from our well. Accompanied with a shot of Lone star Finnish vodka. Lamb has always been our favourite dinner

For our indepence day we made an old traditional Karelian menu “Karelian Hot pot”. Meat stew again slowly cooked in the clay pot and vegetables. Champagne and good wine.

Some specialities in the Beach Sauna when bathing for X-mas festivities

Dinette of S/y Naneux, alias Atlantic Navigator. Many gourmet dinners in Tenerife.

Gourmet X – mas dinner with crispy salad

Healthy breakfasts with homemade toast and country eggs. Lambrusco in the sun.

Tapas on the road in Canaries is always an unforgettable meal and a cold jarra of beer
