Re: 2013 Sailing Season

We got the boat out of the slip for the first time yesterday! Unfortunately a part popped off the top of the roller furler when we hoisted the genoa and then we started having halyard wrap and binding issues when we tried to use it. So I need to get the rigger up the mast. On the positive side, we sailed under main only and with the bottom job were making 5 knots most of the time. Still a very nice sailing day and felt good to get back out.

On the projects side, I took out the alcohol stove and have been working on installing a propane stove/system. I should be able to finish up the install today. Sharon couldn't stand the alcohol stove so she's very excited about the upgrade.
