Quick Bits About Ticket To Ride

We had an excellent visit to HYM in China to see the progress of our HH55, Ticket To Ride. As usual, we were treated very well by everyone at HH.  Hudson Wang kindly took us to dinner a few nights and we enjoyed his generosity, the company of others and the delicious food.

We spent a lot of time looking through Ticket To Ride and taking pictures of areas that will be covered soon so we will know where everything is in the event that we (Frank) needs to repair or access a system.  Think of things such as the solar controllers that are mounted in the ceiling. During this visit, the ceiling panels were not yet installed so we could take photos.

Repeat for pretty much every inch of the boat!

HH sent us a progress report about a week ago that shows much more has been accomplished since our visit. Here are just a couple of pictures from the report:

The dagger board fabrication is complete and painting is in process.

There is a learning curve involved in sailing with dagger boards, but we look forward to having less slip and better pointing ability by having them.

We switched from a teak shower floor to Kerlite and the look is great!

The teak shower floor looked good on the other HH sailboats, but we decided to have a porcelain tile product (Kerlite) installed instead because we think it will be lower maintenance. Plus we like the look of it. What do you think?

Our very own washer/dryer. That is exciting.

Some people would choose a dishwasher rather than a washer/dryer, but since usually it is only Frank and I eating and we don’t generate many dishes, I prefer having the ability to wash our clothing on board. (Whoohoo, no more washing in a bucket!)

So that is it, a very quick bit of information about our boat. We head back to China for sea trials in just a couple of weeks and we can hardly wait!

Thanks to HH for fabricating this boat for us with such care.  And thank you to M&M for everything you have and are doing for us, beginning with designing a great sailboat/home for us.

  1. Just wondering how you might be impacted by the Trump tariffs? Beautiful boat!
