Too sunny in Madeira

Filipe Assunção, skipper of Jackpot, has written from Madeira. He wants to know whether anyone has a design for a bimini, or has fitted one. In these northern latitudes any exposure to the sun is seen as a bonus, but perhaps biminis are more common in Australia, so please add a comment,or contact Filipe directly if you have bimini experience.
He also wants to fit a spray hood. Renegade's spray hood is narrower than some I have seen and we usually take it down when sailing, because it completely blocks the helmsman's view forward. Does anyone out there have a spray hood which they are happy with?

New owner and home port for Tai-pan

I want to inform you that the Tai-Pan, which is listed in your Ufo 34 Owners list, has changed owner. Since May this year I'm the new owner of this vessel. The vessel will keep the same name but the port of registry has changed from Lelystad to Hasselt. I want to kindly ask you to update this information if possible. Thanks in advance,
