I've been busy building a cradle for lifting the boat from the trailer. So much so that I neglected to take any pictures of the process. I'll get to it this week. The cradle is built, the boat is off the trailer and the centerboard removerd and some minor work already done with it. Last year the centerboard used to bind a little when let down. I made it a bit to thick done near the lead slug. That is no longer a problem. I'll post some pictures of the mods this week.
In other news...
The gaff jaws have been completed. All thats needed is the rope with roller beads on the rear.
The rudder blade got a touch up and a coat of varnish for the summer. Note the color difference in the area that was inside the rudder case. UV rays have power for sure.
