Jib Halyard Restraint

We have had trouble with rolling the jib in and out since we've had the boat, a very good rigger, Matt Sebring saw us fowl after a race, and immediately after looking at the previous blog told us that a jib halyard restraint was needed and a couple days later he installed it.  Thanks Matt it works!

BYC Commodore Cruise to Island Moorings

Enjoyed dolphins on the way over, with light winds both days.  Beautiful sailing.

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.
