i550 in Brazil

My last post was written in March 2012, 1 year and 9 months ago.
That is exactly the time it took this little beauty to cross the ocean and reach home in Rio de Janeiro Brazil.
I will not waste your time and get into details and explain the ordeal I went through, the money I spent on taxes, or all the headaches with the moving company.

 What a feeling, what a relief to finally set eyes on my little boat.

The wooden box built to fit inside the container and the supports custom shaped on the hull bottom worked perfectly to secure the boat at a 45 degree angle during its very long journey from Turkey to Brazil..... Thanks to Chad for showing me how to fit the boat inside the container and thanks for Yalçin who actually build the box.

So hopefully I will post a few more pictures in 2014 of hull 270 sailing in Rio :)
