Refit Continued, 2005

 

 

Rosemary Ruth froze in quite happily in late January, 2005.

Bowsprit, gaffs and booms (except main boom, which was too big) were taken below and varnished (Helmsman Spar Polyurethane, mixed with turpentine, Japan Drier and black paint).

After the snow had stopped, the wind continued, making it an ideal day to sand off the old varnish on the gaffs, because the wind kept the dust away.

One of the nice things about working outside in the winter is being able to stand on the ice of the harbor to get at areas that otherwise would be more difficult :-). Note the safety rope and pole.

Hot tea makes working outside much more pleasant.

 

 
Almost ready for the test sail, late February, 2005.

At long last! Finally sailing! A beautiful day in New York Harbor, February 27, 2005, light winds, sunny, temperature a little above freezing...who could ask for better weather :-).

Doing the kind of adjustments expected during a test sail...
