Fore MAST,is up

01 July 2013 | Sechelt
first nice sunny day
Boy has alot happened since Xmass...But in the end i got to build a bow sprit....It was on the to do list ,but not so soon.It snapped and it and myself whent for a crisp spring swim.It happened when we were changing the fore mast ...

new sail plan

17 January 2013 | On the Hook
cool but nice
Had some time on my hands .. decided to put the new fore mast up...and rig the drummer on windows paint....found out a while back that the fore mast we got last spring ,off a ketch that had wrecked in Gibsons...was a few feet shorter than the heavy Fir tree we have on deck now...i think the Drummer will like a little less load on its bow.....M
