Joshua Tactor was raised up the mast to replace the Windex, spinaker halyard, and clean the underside of the spreaders, great job!  Dean and Jamie helped provide safety and I cranked him up.

Head Sails, main sail cover and wheel covers resewn.

The head sail ultraviolet protection was in need of being resewn, the main sail cover zipper was also resewn on, and the wheel cover zipper needed to be replaced.  Roberta pulled out her Sailright sewing machine performing all of the above and then some, thanks Roberta!

Strainers-Bilge Cleanup

Strainer Oyster
Now evicted oyster, he had already expired and long since past.

The bilge water was too high for me so I am moving the float switch to a lower portion of the bilge.  All sea creatures were evicted from the strainer system, now we have our home to ourselves.
