Skalliwag is in her slip!

Skalliwag is in her slip. Spent Easter weekend de winterizing, cleaning and organizing. Major issues: the lavac head started siphoning flush water causing it to overflow. I found the anti siphon valve and cleared it using a piece of wire.
And the inlet water fitting to the water maker HP pump cracked somehow. Found it because there was a valve mispositioned in the engine room that sent water from the water pump to that fitting. Still working on getting parts to repair.
Sails have not been delivered from Quantum.
Over the winter Z removed the life raft cradle toward of the mast: headsail sheets continuously fouling on it. Had a new 100% working jib made by Quantum.
Replaced the old Furono Radar with a Raymarine RD 424D dome with a Raymarine C95 MFD at the Nav Station.

The Screwpile Helicopter took these shots of Skalliwag at the mouth of the Patuxent.

The temperature was in the low 20's this morning. Drove up to Zahnisers to check on Skalliwag. She was supposed to have been splashed last Friday but due to weather that has been delayed. Zahnisers is way behind after the brutal winter. The new Raymarine Radome is up but the wiring has not been run. The chartplotter at the Nav station has not been installed either. At least the Outage is over. Now it should just be a matter of days. Hopefully before next weekend-Easter Weekend!
