MINOR WORK CONTINUES AS WE WAIT FOR BOOM FITTING
Wednesday Phil made a waterproof seal for the base of the mast to stop ingress of water at home and first fitted it.
They certainly are learning a lot about the boat ,as is Phil.
Then Ron showed us how to haul it into position up the mast. We lifted it half way and were satisfied it was a success but then it stuck as the pulley at the top was facing the mast and the rope jammed between the mast and the pulley.
All we now need is a volunteer .
Our students were interested in the device so we let them have a go each . Trust you can see where this is leading ?
All now rests on the awaited "goose neck" which is holding up the progress. Hopefully it will arrive soon !
