Lesson Learned

Windy Way looks great. Really like the dark windows, I'm definitely going to have to do that.

Lesson for the day:
Check for rot in the bulkheads, Had my port, side stay foot almost out through the deck this weekend. The bolts ripped all the way up to the deck completely splintering the wood inside the cabin. Luckily one of the bolts caught it or I would have demasted the boat. The urethane finish on the inside can be deceiving, be sure to check. Could have been a major disaster, but i guess thats part of buying a 500$ boat..

But man she was moving, making the Hunters and Catalina's that were racing look stupid. ha
