4/2010 No real news to report since the christening party. I slowed the pace of progress down a bit to catch my breath and take a bit of a break. I have begun to put the rig and electronics back together. Hung the boom and installed the mainsheet which was about the time Doyle Sails called to say my sails were ready to be picked up. Great job of repairing and shaping the mainsail and jib. Got the mainsail on but will have to wait on the jib until I get the Harken roller-furler back on the new forestay. I then went to work on installing and checking out the electronics. Installed the new Standard Horizon VHF with built in AIS and hailer. What a great addition, it sounds automatic fog signals over the hailer speaker and acts as a class b AIS receiver. I then got the Fusion sound system installed; Sounds Great ! Next was the 12V lcd tv with built-in dvd mounted and wired up. And then.... It was time to track down all the wiring and check the nav instruments; a Raymarine C70 multi display with ST60+ depth, speed and temp transducers. As it turns out, the ST60s' were dead and the C70 fired up but would not receive the GPS signal. I sent it all back to Raymarine for repair. It's a whole lot cheaper to repair than replace. And besides, this is top of the line equipment (at least on my budget, ha!). The 2kw radar will be hooked up and checked when I get the C70 back. We were supposed to have a quick overnight trial trip this weekend but of course, there were other things going on . Maybe next weekend...

This is the party to celebrate our "mostly ready" CSY 44 walkthrough sailboat. After roughly 3 months of non-stop work, she was ready for her "coming out" party.

From the time I first saw her in Mobile, Alabama until she is ready to sail. Projects on top of projects, and then some more.
