Work has continued on our standing rigging, but our schedule was thrown off by several very rainy weeks in December. Alas, the best laid plans sometimes get totally trashed by Mother Nature! But, we are SO THRILLED to announce that the rigging is COMPLETE!! The final touches were added yesterday and the aloft rig inspection is scheduled for tomorrow which means that in just a few short days we will own an actual sailing vessel, not just underpowered motor boat! YAY!
Happy to report that our rigging project has been a very educational experience and even stayed within budget! Shocking! We did have to give up on the old roller furler and order a new one. Sometimes dismanteling equipment from the 70's is just not worth the effort.
Enjoy the potporri of pictures below featuring our holiday season, final aloft work and a great day of snow, snow, snow while visiting family over the holiday!
**As of one hour ago, our standing rigging has passed inspection! Our boat is safe to sail!**
