As you can see from the pictures, Milanto spent time late last year in the boatyard in preparation for the ARC 2017.
She had a new coat of paint and polish and her teak deck was given new life. Parts for the engine were ordered and it was refurbished and given a complete servicing, plus new water maker membranes installed.
All the safety equipment was checked, the winches greased, interior wood varnished and oiled, the new EPIRB registered and the halyards serviced and replaced where needed.
We also purchased the Red Port Optimizer which links in with the satellite phone on board to enable a BYOD - Bring Your Own Device satellite hotspot for smartphones, tablets and computers so that you can easily access email, web, weather and tracking.
