Not going to make it today…

Three new things here. The orange bungee is for VHF, GPS, Dry bag tethers. Easy to slide side to side and capsize proof. The compass. Also at the forward cabin bulkhead, I put in two foot-steps so I can comfortably hang over the bow to reach the anchor and lines.

Lee board while towing. Note board in slot as backup for the bungee. It won’t let the board fall. There will be a way to hold the board in the slot.

Trailer has a new guide/bunk with guide pole for re-loading on the trailer. There is another, shorter one, under the leeboard on the other side to match.

Going back out after lunch for more. Need some touch up painting, but that may wait for Texas. Have to find and pack all my sailing gear and clothes (that’s going to be a real challenge!). Change the oil in the car. Etc, Etc.

Un Abrazo,

Bill

    you will find however the flat front of the cabin will be buffeted by the wind and trying to push you off course most of the time.

    Peter,
    Quite possibly. There is room for an inclined plain from the back of the anchor well to the top of the cabin; could easily be added if needed. We shall see… THanks for input.

      I will try and get a shot of the inside today. It is pretty bare-bones for the time being, as I just wanted to get on the water.
