A riveting time for Jeff
06 April 2011 | La Linea
We were anxious to get Jeff up his mast before the Levanter comes and we are also planning to leave soon - weather permitting. Jeff wants to rivet an eye pad on his mast so he can attach an inner forestay. The previous day had been wet and dull so we were for have the perfect day today.
Steve and I winched him up, this time with no ladder, and then hoisted up a bucket bag with tools in. When we bought the boat I was sorely tempted to throw out this grotty looking bag but Steve said no and it has been invaluable for lifting things up on a pulley when we have been in a boatyard. Here Jeff is with riveter in hand, early ballet training coming in handy!
