Bending a Sheet

Hey all;

So I pulled out my mainsail today and found that it is a brand new sail with all the hardware already installed!!! I have a single reef point and 4 battens with tell tails. Here it is installed



And here is my first ever attempt at scalloping.




I have a working jib and a storm jib I haven't pulled out yet, might have a couple more surprises i'm store. Tomorrow I have to run all new haylards & control lines.

Flaking

Congratulations on the boat and gear.

FYI, lowing the main sail and stowing it on the boom is called 'flaking'. As in "please lower and flake the main."

Good luck,
Barry

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.

Im going to buy some canvas next week and make a sail cover for it. It'll be my first of MANY canvas projects for my boat. I will need a Bimini before the end of the summer, the trip back to Canada without a bimini is going to be murder!! I was going to steal an idea off here, a member bought a screen gazebo from Walmart and draped it over their boom. Problem is I won't have a boom once I hit the Erie canal...

A couple sun umbrella's or golf umbrella's will have to do.

It really is, every time I turn around there is something else on this boat. There are some issues I have found but the presents are still popping up.

dont bother with the "tent" go get a "dining" tent, one that just has a roof. then cut the legs down, and get come old lady cane or crutch tips from walmart for the ends of the tubing. you can then just use zip ties to tie the "frame" to the stern rain and stantion/life lines. it wont be 100 % pretty but it would work and fast to put up.

this one from walmart even has adjustable legs

this one is smaller and cheaper
70 bucks
