Re: A boatload of updates...
As one of your 5 blog fans I must applaud you on all the hard work you have done on Papillon recently. Getting her into the water without a wasps nest in the mast was quite an accomplishment. All I can suggest is that it gets easier over time as the 'to-do' list gets shorter (hopefully) and you have been there, done that before (like with the epoxy).
There are two O'Day 25's at my club and I think they are pretty nice boats. I wonder if the 'lee helm' you felt after launch and engine failure was because you had too much jib out or maybe the center board was not deployed? I'm sure you will figure this all out in time.
You really owe it to yourself to go out and do some sailing after all the work you have done. Enjoy what is left of summer and the windier fall season.
