Shangrila is back in the water
As winter is fast approaching the boss thought it time to have the company boat serviced. She is an old girl dating back to 1993 with two big twin Detroit Diesel engines pushing her along.
Shangrila was named after the companies favorite hotel chain, so you can take a guess which chain that is. Like the Hotels she is luxurious and sexy with a great interior but sadly requires constant upkeep.
So getting back to the point of this topic. Shangrila had a moderately hard summer with many excursions out the the pacific, some barb ques with loads of guests hoping on board from time to time.
However with summer drawing to a close and Autumn here little problems started to appear like cracked hoses, broken marine lights, air-con failures, leveling flap malfunction, sea strainer cleaning, filter changes and many more including bottom painting and new zinc plates.
She was hauled out of the water two weeks ago and was on the dry until today 02-12-2017 Some 1.02 million JPY later she is fully maintained and sea worth ready for nest summer and prepared for the odd typhoon.
Hope you like the old girl
