Surprise surprise. Went to go see if Brooklin Boat Yard could grab our mast out of storage before our launch on Thursday. They were already moving it and said they'd be hauling the boat this afternoon. Rushed back to the boat shed to clean up tools and projects, tie everything down on the deck, and follow it up the road! We launch mañana! Good thing too, the original launch was set right during the USA v Germany game on Thursday!

Dolphins with us on the last passage we did. See how that one keeps turning to look at me? It was stunning.

Hello from Charleston, SC! A couple of long days sailing and we've got dolphins, palm trees, derelict year round boats in anchorages, and a couple big motor yachts carefully shined up by teenage crew. Just like the Caribbean! South enough?!

The dinghy is getting some upgrades too. New row locks, a split plank repair, and a whole new paint color...

There are many boat projects this spring after a couple of years delaying this and that. One that I suspected would be quick was straightening out the boom gallows. It had been side loaded at some unknown time and bent about two inches off center. You could hardly notice unless you looked at it from directly aft or forward. Most of the bending occurred in the mounting hardware at the base, so there was the worry that water was now able to make it in and rot the deck....

Starting in on winter boat projects with the yankee jib I got used last year. It was about $1000 less expensive than a new jib and is in pretty good shape, only 10% smaller than Mimi Rose's original yankee, and pretty clean. Only one problem, the foot was stretched a bit on the previous boat, probably by being sheeted tight against a shroud. No worries, just add a foot line. The hardest part was feeding all 15' up the foot.
