One step forward......

Mark and I felt a sense of foreboding as we arrived in Gosport today. In fact we sat in the car putting off the dreaded moment of finding out what progress had been made while we ate sandwiches.

Finally I called Jerry the Rigger. GOOD NEWS! They are on deck running through the final items. Replace worn topping lift, replace worn mainsail furling line, replace staysail attachment, and re-rivet the boom vang.

So then down to the boat.

BAD NEWS! The electrician has done his back in and can't finish the engine today. Aaaaarghhh! Will it be done tomorrow? Who knows!?!?! Can we sail on Wednesday ? Who knows?!!

Re-rivet the boom vang? Wasn't that a hit for the Jacksons in the late 70s?!
