The Competitive Radish Launched!

The Radish is back in the water after a 2 month 'refit' (I use the term loosely), and she looks great. We ended up pulling and rebedding all the deck hardware, painting the hull and topside, rebedding all the lights and hatch, and pressure washing the interior cabin. Now clean and ready to sail. learned lots and wouldn't trade the experience. Now working on rigging as it breaks under use - it was an old boat when we got it. Rudder cracked in two on maiden weekend. Yesterday three of the main sail slides cracked. All repaired and back at it. Now to tune the rigging.....

Blog at is so inclined.
