Didi 38 kit to the South Pacific loading

The paint we supplied are the stack in front of Clinton and Tim,International Paints local area manager,all supplied at our trade costings plus a small margin to cover our expenses.

International Paints supplied all the coatings that Charles would need.

This was one of those kits that started as a set of bulkheads and related materials to a Dix Design Didi 38,Charles had bought his plans,we asked could we quote him on the supply of materials,he accepted our offer and we were awarded the contract.

What then became clear was that Charles was going to build his new boat on a small island in the pacific ocean,its about 170 miles west of Honolulu,there was never going to be a chance of him finding anything locally,so we started to ask for prices on North Sails,Sparcraft mast and boom,Yanmar diesel engine,Anderson winches,Raymarine electronics,International Paints,Gebo Hatches,Jabsoco toilet and pumps,Stainless push and pullpits,fastners,glues,in the end we made up a single package and sent it off as one lot,the picture shows the keel being loaded here in Cape Town.
