SVAuspicious will become famous soon enough
We about wrapped up the prep party on my dock a few minutes ago when the rain started. Everybody took jibs down. Most took mains down as well. I rain my forward halyards to the masthead with a messenger line -- Both main halyards are spaced down the boom.

We doubled up dock lines on boats that are staying. Some are hauling. I'm the only one crazy enough to go anchor out. I'll head up a creek Friday night or Saturday morning.

Just have to get the grill off the rail, empty the bed of my truck, and finish some odds and ends at Janet's house.
