Funny. Maybe they will just double the wages of the weathermen
Late for me too. Usually we are in the weekend before May long weekend
and sailing on the long weekend.
I went down the well trodden path of getting a few stars in my eyes.
When we sold last boat we were going to get a day sailor with over night
capabilities - something with some performance like Kirby 25 or Bom 7.6
since we rarely cruised anymore. Then found current boat that needed a
couple of things done. Much better boat. It needed recoring around a
couple of stanchions and since I had done that on chainplates and
cockpit floor before I thought no problem. It needed everything
rebedded - I had rebedded tracks and fittings before so no problem there
either. There was quite a list of relatively simple tasks many of which
I had previously done before ...
However - when I record around Chainplates on the Niagara that was THE
PROJECT for the Spring - and only thise two areas. When I installed a
marine head before it was one of a few projects. When I rebedded genoa
tracks before I did only two tracks .... A big difference from doing
everything in one season and then everything else the next.
The good news is that as June comes around I am sick of working on boats
and want to go sailing. That makes for a ridiculous 10 day push that
gets it all completed and th e boat launched. Only 80 hours in projects
this Spring that aree not part of normal commissioning.
Well - launching Saturday - sadly no new sails for this year
