Seabrook says the yacht will be ready Friday March 30, 2007. We made calls to the many people who enthusiastically volunteered to help bring the boat back in triumph. No one could go. Finally John Hornung said he would like to help, and Joe Kessling volunteered to drive up the Houston. It just shows how promises are so cheap when there is something else to do on the weekend.

Actually I was very much looking forward to sailing short handed with Jan, but I am also glad to have another good hand in John Hornung.

Centerboard Box

Hope springs eternal! I called OJ Young at the boat yard today. He said the last piece of work was in the machine shop. It was the metal box that leads the centerboard cable into the hull. He said I was lucky to have it done now. The old box crumbled as they were removing it. Soon the box would have leaked and sent the yacht to the bottom of the slip or into the sea.

Hopefully we can pick her up next week
