It was a very warm day with no breeze, so I took the opportunity to work out the sail rigging, raising them, lowering them and made sure I understood how things went together.

Was kind of fun.

Learned how to do it, and take them down. I'm happy.

Looks like I might be ordering a new rudder though, one that kick up.

Well.... I got my new rudder and tiller assembly in a couple days ago, put it all together and set it on the grugeons. Looks COOL!

I still need to find the right materials for patching a sail though

For patching sails, I have bought just a normal sail repair kit from some website,not sure which one.

It came with thread, needles, sail palm, cloth, dacron tape stuff and maybe a few other things. I have patched a 3' rip in one sail with it and its holding up pretty good. I keep the kit on the boat just in case too.

I suggest you jsut search for a good prices sail repair kit....
