Saturday, May 24!!!

Ok, today was basically trailer mod day-stainless fabrication. I went to my brother Oscar’s house and we extended the trailer tongue 4 feet, added a new brace from platform to hitch, mounted/cut unistrut, fabricated 2 boomkin brackets in Stainless, mast head tang, mast partner plate (aluminum) , and this took 6 hours. Still have work on trailer to do at home…

Yesterday I suddenly realized that I had forgotten the skeg. So here it is…Did not notice that slight offset till the photo-Call it a design feature!!

Also got lead poured and faired into rudder…

Checked leeboard swing/pivot and got top mount glued in.

Too tired to go on; need to accomplish more tomorrow…

I am in Athens safely. my hotel has a restuarant on the top floor with a view of the whole city including the parthonan(sp?). just had coffee staring at the city. well off to work.
