The Project Blue Daisy

Getting the boat to Ellös

It is a special joy to be involved in the second total refit of a HR46. This boat is owned by a Polish owner called Artur and was sailed from Ibiza to Ellös specifically for the refit.

Lifting day with surprises

It was a dark December day with freezing rain poring sideways in the stiff gale when Blue Daisy was lifted in Ellös for the first time in a very long time.

Artur sees Blue Daisy for the first time

I think I talk for all of us, including Artur himself, when I say that we were all a bit nervous when Artur was coming to Ellös to see his own boat for the first time.

Nautical Channel on-site in Ellös

The second time Artur flew to Ellös to see the progress of Blue Daisy’s refit, a film team from Nautical Channel was already on site waiting for him.
