Re: Keel: a.k.a Water Bucket

Launch was sketchy....one of the lower side stays popped out while the crane was hoisting it aboard and the operator would not drop it for me to replace it which would have taken maybe all of 18 seconds.

Anyhow we did not / could not install sails at the storage yard so we motored dead into the wind the 10 miles from downtown inner harbour to MIssissauga Lakefront Marina.

Great fun...sunny, huge winds and big waves and we got soaked from spray. The little bit of water that was inside was from that spray. We made it safely. Sunday I climbed up a step ladder leaning on mast and fixed the stay, installed the sails and hand scrubbed the deck with a bucket and brush. (no water yet at dock)

This weekend I am going head first into the 1/4 berth to remove the wood near the stern and see if I can see / access the rudder stock where it goes through. My plan, if I can reach the area, is to spray that rudder stock with the remaining gutter sealant. I will also be able to see the nuts that hold the engine lifting bracket. Since I cannot replace its weak springs I will look at replacing it next season.

But sailing may interfere with those plans.
