October 15, 2016-Round Up-Update

New Spinnaker hits the loft floor for measurement and numbers

The saga continues:

John flew into town on Tuesday with our new spinnaker in his luggage, only his luggage didn't arrive with him. The spinnaker went to Los Angeles.


But Alaska airlines assured us that they'd collect the missing bag and deliver it to the marina on Thursday, which they did. So now we have it.

WOW! it is a very nice kite. We hauled it up to Mike's place for a measurement and a change in numbers. Mike says he will get us the original builder's certificate, all part of the great North Sails service. WOW again!

Now everything we have been trying to collect from the US has gotten here, Spinnaker, BBQ, Mail, boat parts.

It's like Christmas, early.

Next we'll put the boat in the yard and do the bottom, get the new rudder bearings, do a couple of through-hull fittings, and be back in the water by Tuesday or Weds next week, then we can go sailing with the new sails. That will be fun.
