Currently White Pepper is in the Seabrook Shipyard. She has been there since early October and work is very slow. So far the new stainless steel water tanks have been installed. The freezer/refrigerator was been built but not installed. There has been work done on the mast. The rigging will be completely cold headed ie the foot plates will all be cold headed, new sheaves installed, a new antenna and wind arrow installed. Stix and Riggin' is replacing the tack horn on the boom and the goose neck. The pulley assembly on the deck for the centerboard cable is being replaced. This was the piece of equipment that ruined Jan's back because it was so corroded.
Hopefully, everything will be pulled together by mid February.
