Fingers and toes crossed the main is fixed and ready to be shipped back to Seattle in time for STYC’s Three Buoy Fiasco on June 15th. I’ve asked that it be shipped the week before just to be sure. New Dyneema lifelines are almost all done being installed. The rig has been tuned by Chris Tutmark. The funky steering issue has been fixed by me (not without plenty of knuckle banging, head scratching, and, of course, swearing). There is still plenty to do before the boat is ready to race but it’s doable in a few hours of concentrated effort.
Should be able to make the first Elliot Bay Thursday night race on June 13th as well. My fingers and toes will be cramped by race day but I’m intent of making it happen this time! Come on wind, go away rain.
