OK got some more work done today. Nathan went up the mast again today and installed the wind instruments and they worked. Sweet! Like I said the other day those new B&G Triton displays are awesome.

There's still a bunch of nick nacky stuff left to do like secure the new wiring for the instruments, install personal gear pouches, etc. etc. Oh yeah, there's a new Diesel fuel leak. Honestly after I spent last Saturday emptying the tanks, cleaning the tanks and then filtering the fuel and refilling the tanks again seeing liquid dinosaurs in the bilge got me a bit irked.

On the bright side I installed a nifty little camera mount called the Trail Rail (www.Trail-Rail.com) that I picked up at the New York Bicycle Show. It's a nice nice piece of machined aluminum originally designed for mountain bike handle bars but it fits perfectly on the boat's pushpit. It's exactly what I was looking for and the nice people at Trail Rail gave me one to test out for the sail to Hawaii. Can't wait to see the videos.
