Second coat of teak oil applied by Tammy while I put replacement plugs in the screw holes on the toe rail, no pictures just the satisfaction of completing something!

Sewing the sail

We had a rip in our jib sail, so after ripping it some more with the sewing machine, took the machine to be adjusted.  Then we were able to sew a crude patch on to the sail.  The sail is past it prime.  We will replace with another, and we already have it below, after seewng the sacrificial uv cover on it.  But this will do for now.

Teak cleaned & oiled!

We have brown teak instead of grey!  Tammy cleaned the teak with the pressure washer to remove the old varnish and oiled the teak.  I cleaned the stainless.  Boat is looking good.

Added a 12 volt socket for a fan

Installed a 12 volt socket so we could run a 12 volt fan rather than the 110 volt fan, anchoring is going to be more comfy!

Wind Vane & Close Hauled Instrument

Well the wind indication was still incorrect.  So we pulled them off the mast again, and sent both to Raymarine after checking the wiring.  Both were bad, after a flat fee; which they included both, thanks Raymarine; they are working.  I hope!  So I hoisted Tammy up the mast to replace the wind vane.  She had fun and of course took selfies from the top.
