Back on the Water for the 2012 Season
29 April 2012 | Portsmouth, RI
Sunny but very windy
Shes back in the water at last!
I went down a few days ago and collected the sails from Sperry, fitted the Spinnaker tack lines and turning blocks for the Spinnaker sheets. Fitted a new cleat for the Genoa furling line.
Yesterday I went down and futzed. Pleased that she was in the water. I had built a contraption to hold the outboard motor on the stern rail. I fitted that. Looks good. I also varnished the teak, hanked on the main and generally got her cleaned up some.
Today Niki and I sorted out the main sail battens, put the 144 Genoa on and brought all the cushions etc. down. She's ready to go for a new season.
