    Phil did a nice video with the owners of Umoya on the subject. I think you can buy just about anything you need in cape-town, Carrie and i were pretty impressed with the V&A.

    Make sure you guys did a pre-visit. Fly over when they pull your hull/deck out of the tooling. Spend a few days with Peter and Shereen.. stay in the V&A. Think you’ll come to the same conclusion.

    2025 will be here before you know it! Congratulations!

    Agree with Jeff’s assessment and suggested plan. I just had a great visit to Cape Town at the start of my build.

    Hi Valerie, we are slotted for 2025 as well (I think we’re hull #29). Scheduling a pre-launch visit, does anyone know the best time to do this? Someone mentioned at Annapolis it’s good to go when cabinetry decisions need to be made. Elizabeth

      Hi Carl. Two Oceans wants veneer decision when hull build starts so they can order the veneer. Two Oceans has a collection of veneer/flooring/fabric choices in office which is very helpful. Much better than trying to decide from pictures. Nexus likely the same. I also went to the Romo fabric store while in Cape Town. Janine in that store is super nice and helpful. She know what fabrics went on other Balance cats.
