OK, as you can see its finally painted. Mast stepped last week. new standing rigging with Hi-mods and custom 316 stainless hex bar turnbuckles. New digital Radar, new Lofrans windlass, new Harken roller cutter/staysail setup, new running rigging. In the second pic you can see my added secondary winches and cheekblock mounts added to the cockpit. Moved the boat this morning from the gravel to a different spot on the pavement. working on wiring the windlass, wiring the mast base. next on the list are stanchions and rails, load anchor locker with chain, load rocna anchor, final sanding on the deck. and a host of small interior projects to tidy up in fall. Launch date spring 2012.
