Oh My Gosh!!!!! Destry just sent me the most beautiful fabrics and colors for our boat! She is awesome! No wonder she is the designer for the New N120! Everything she sent me is just fabulous! My only hope is that it is "kitty-proof" as I love our kitty but she has long hair! Scott is worried about electronics and cost. I only hope our interior budget won't overtake our electronics budget! That would be a big "Whoops!!!"
The term "Refit" of Tabula Rasa may be a little overstated in my opinion. Maybe we should call it a "Minifit". There were many small items identified during the general, mechanical,and electronics surveys. Some items were the owner's responsibilities and other items were recommendations for either improvements or precautionary replacements. John Hoffman from Nordhavn is presently working on the general survey items. Alex Graham from Marine Diesel Solutions will begin addressing the mechanical items starting July 8th with a hard stop on the 15th as the boat needs to go on hard at that point for the hurricane season. We will not be upgrading the present NavNet x.2 system to the new NavNet 3D. We will be adding Cell and Wifi boosters, TV in master, Iridium Satellite Phone, and additional speakers to fly bridge and cockpit as the major items under the electronics category. Now what could move this from a "Minifit" to a "Refit" is the so called soft upgrades. This is the reupholster of the settees, Stidd Chair, window treatments, bed coverings, towels, rugs, etc. Paula and Destry have been working on textures, blends, visuals, colors, impact, and feel. What does that mean? A language I do not understand. And from the best I can tell will not make the boat go faster, straighter, smoother, or enhance fuel economy. The fabric samples are in and Paula loves them. I keep asking how much? No answer yet.
