Do not feel obliged to read this. It is really an archival document related to the the great rudder project.
I spend all day sanding and applying wood treatment stuff to the Scaffie. This is a very social occupation as people passing by stop for a chat and folks as what I know, poop their horn and shout abuse as they drive by.
The weather is very pleasant and I have a wonderful time.
Neil- Excellent work on the teak trim and the replacement rudder. Both look great! Best wishes for your upcoming sailing adventures. Lew
Many thanks Lew. It has been a good project. The weather here is turning Summerish and I hope to get here in the water next weekend. I am also thinking of investing in a new sail. Mine has been been much exposed to UV and I worry that it might tear in high wind. $600 hmmm?
$600 is a good guess. Our local sailmaker will make me a new one in tanbark with reeling points, etc. for $500. I’m figuring that everything in Okinawa is more expensive, but it seems like a lovely place to live!
