now i check my main and mizzen masts for step condition. they are keel stepped onto wood which is on concrete, so condition is in question for the moment– we will loook at them and at the wedges in main mast partners, assess and repair what is able to be fixed in water, and make for waters more south—figure out the locale needed for decent repairs if needed–replace wedges properly–and sail her..i generally use mizzen and jib, as main is HUGE, main boom being about 20 ft give or take a foot or two–long and heavy. is also difficult to douse in seas and weather, so i avoid that by advance prep–not using….
llooking forward to making way again– i donot like stagnation or waiting, and i waited all summer for weather to cool a tad so work can get one–now is time to work, then SAIL!!!!!!
