I was kind of doubtful that a boat that isn't sailed much would have a genoa on it. But it was worth a shot.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

In case anyone is interested...

I found two snatch blocks. One of which has a damaged "case" (I don't know the names of the parts, but it is essentially the outer bearing race) but it didn't seem to affect the block's ability to work. Some of the bearings become exposed when "in that spot" as that 1/4 of the case is broken away. I installed them and ran the sheets through. I advised my brother to replace the one block.

Also, in my quest for a soap, I found none that could be used while on the water. All, including organics/non-toxics, advised not to use near any body of water. They rely on soil organisms to break down the soap, etc., and are still toxic when in direct contact with water bodies. Funny how the "boat wash" is twenty feet from the shore and I see people soaping down their boats all the time. Real smart those...

Sincerely,

/s/ Jon C. Munson II
