Taking Down the Masts
Wed Nov 3 18:48:33 EDT 2010, Catskill, NY

Issuma is heading for the Erie Canal, which has low bridges, so the masts need to be taken down (unstepped) for the trip.

It is a big job to take down the masts (and an even bigger one to put them back up again). The ever-helpful Hop-O-Nose marina crew in picturesque Catskill Creek did most of the work (I helped), lifting the masts with their crane and building the wooden supports to hold them aboard.

In the picture, the mainmast is sitting on the dock, and the foremast is still stepped. All the stuff on deck normally is part of the rig (ie sails), or stored in the keel well (the keel has been lifted up to reduce the draft and drag).

Nov 3 looks more like Halloween.
Well the election results are in and our WV Governor will be taking Sen. Robert Byrd's place in the US Senate. Such a shame Nancy Pelosi will have to step down from being Speaker of the House!!!! Love, Sylvia & Olga

Two Schooners

Issuma and Rosemary Ruth at anchor off Kingston, NY (in front of Rondout
Lighthouse). Rosemary Ruth is a beautiful Tom Colvin-designed pinky schooner, which is for sale.

Issuma was going up the Hudson River, and I was looking for a place with easier (land) transportation to put Rosemary Ruth, so I figured the easiest way to do that was for Issuma to tow Rosemary Ruth upriver.

To use their blognames, Tugster and Bowsprite came along for part of the trip. Tugster wrote about it here
