I am in the process or re-working Mouse Pad in getting her more ship-shape and comfortable than on the last cruise. Lots of new items and adjustments have been made in an effor to make her more comfortalbe and safer to sail with a short crew.

In the weeks and months to come I will be posting all the good things that I learned from the last cruise and what I have done to Mouse Pad to change her for her crew and master.

Some of the items I have already chaged and will be writing about are...
Double Head Sails
Removing teak eyebrow and hand rails
Line Hangers
Hatched for Dorades
Engine control panel move
Fuel can rails

See you around and happy sailing... never leave port without filing a sail-plan...
