West Coast delivery, running the gauntlet...

Time for a break from my insane schedule so we are fixing to drive down to Frisco to pick up a Hudson force 50 and sail her back up to the yard. She's a bit rough in some spots but not too bad.





Bad sprit:


I figure we can screw on some plates to hold that sprit together and only fly a yankee in light air. This thing has a big staysail that we can fly when it gets up to 30 knots (which it will).

All in all, a nice escape from my seven day a week two job bullshyte.

Here's a slideshow for those who wanna see more.

PassageWeather shows a 960mb Low spinning around in the Gulf of Alaska but we'll see if it stays there or not. I know we'll get 30+ off Mendicino, always do...
