Our rigger--Brion Toss--showed up this morning for the first walk thru and came back this afternoon with help to better inspect what we had and what we need done. After 26 years there is some tightening needed and some updating. He is going to put together a game plan and get with us tomorrow to go over it.
Zephyr gets hauled out tomorrow and "put on the hard". She'll be braced with stands so that nothing can happen to her. She even gets her bottom power washed to get all the growth off her. We have some zincs(a softer metal piece that electrolysis in water attacks instead of more valuable fittings under the water of our boat) need replacing. They have to be custom made so we will have lots done and kept in storage for the future as they can go fast in many harbors.
It's been a fast day with workers climbing all over our boat and more tomorrow. Stay tuned for the continuing adventures. We're just getting started. The fun(we're still waiting for it) starts soon.
