Almost ready for splash # 2!

I finished the mast step repair and while I had all the rigging off, buffed the faded gelcoat back out. I'm getting ready to order new Kevlar sails and an Assym along with the spinnaker gear for the little boat. A couple more days of decent weather and I'll be done with the prep. Gonna go out and kick some big boat butt around the cans when she's done.

Hopefully, the skipper will be able to fully and efficently utilize all the improvements, so that he may, indeed, kick some big boat butt.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

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.

Well, let's see....

A new masthead Genoa with a window in Kevlar to replace the FR Jib on a masthead rig. A new Kevlar main with REEF POINTS, something the old, blown out bag I have now doesn't possess. A new 280sq.ft. Assym chute, which the boat didn't have before. Two winches, didn't have any before. An outhaul and traveler system where none existed before. Oh, a complete halyards aft system with Lewmar clutches that wasn't there either. Dang! This thing may be more versatile and fun than before. I took a couple of pics of the hull before and after I buffed the oxidation off that I'll have to get up here. Man, what a difference.
