They had this system of baskets on sticks. The baskets could face up or down, could be one or several per stick and offered many different configurations, never could figure them out. Kept me sailing close to home ......

Hope you are enjoying the fruits of your labor and starting your Baltic summer cruise.

First major trip coming up over midsummer's eve. Getting the last bit of gear sorted out and will be taking her out for a shakedown cruise next week. It will be SOOOO good to be underway again after the long winter.
