Talking What are your sail-related plans this weekend?

Well May is finally here! I am sailing all day Saturday and all day Sunday! I am taking the ASA 101 course so I can get that certification. The season is finally here for me!

The weather here looks a bit chilly mid to upper 50s, with slight chances of rain here and therre:
SAT
E WINDS 5 TO 10 KT. WAVES 1 FOOT OR LESS... EXCEPT UP TO
4 FT AT THE OUTER HARBOR ENTRANCE.

SUN
E WINDS 5 TO 10 KT...INCREASING TO 10 TO 15 KT IN THE LATE
AFTERNOON AND OVERNIGHT. WAVES 1 FOOT OR LESS. A CHANCE OF
SHOWERS IN THE LATE AFTERNOON AND OVERNIGHT.

So what sailing/boat maintenance are you doing this weekend?

Its actually gonna be sunny and not so rainy this weekend in Seattle.

Plans:

1. Finish the cleaning and varnishing the ceiling. I pulled all the old headliner pieces out to discover a bunch of mold from previous leaks from topside. Its also going to be a good time to tab in some of the supports.

2. The plywood used for the headliner adds about 70 lbs. Some dry totted. So, hopefully now that I figured out this glassing stuff, I am creating fiberglass replacements and hope to have those back in. The fiberglass versions I hope work the way intended as some of the longer pieces are pretty heavy. This is being done as I am re-upholstering the liner as well with new vinyl that is easier to clean.

3. Even if not done with one and two - hopefully will get out on the water if my volunteer crew indeed have no plans for the weekend. If not then back to 1 & 2.

Cheers!

/\/\ Sounds good to me, hope you can get out on the water. How did you figure out the fiberglassing? Trial and error?

Yeah - I had bought a ton of the supplies when I was going to repair the topsides of my C-27's deck. When I saw the headliner condition, I figured now was good as time as any to use what was paid for already and not spend more money on new marine plywood to cut up.

I am kinda liking it - extremely lighter than the wood sections that were holding the upholstery pieces. But - its taken me a while to get the ratio stuff down, 2 evenings worth on practice sections, last nights indulgence was the charmer. This was probably the perfect project for learning how to use it and all the wetting out processes as it will never be seen anyways.

Hoyt jib boom is on, need to sort out the running rigging - and convert my workshop back into a sailing boat.

Low 70's and partly cloudy Saturday, I may take the boat out and punch a couple waves, may not.
I 'owe' a buddy a couple days of grunt work on his boat so I may just wind up scrapping teak and scrubbing gel coat; either one is fine by me.

Probably take a day sail over to a beach on St John Sunday. Forecast calls for ESE winds 8-13 and seas 2'-6' and a high of 82.
