...and how was your day?

I went to the Ship's Store here in MDR, where they have a loaner Bos'un chair. I had my dock neighbor hoist me up and I spent an hour or so up there blowing around trying to get my torn jib down. After seeing close up what I had to deal with, I elected to pay a professional the $75/hour to do the serious work, which involves removing the forestay to take the furler down and service it thoroughly. That is the pro in the picture.
