The weather got better, so I got some stuff done.

1 more coat of paint(1 evening)
*Flip her over and back onto the trailer(1 evening) Thanks Alan !
Bedding compound for the mast track & fittings (1 evening)  
Mount the rudder (1 evening)

Mount the Engine (1 evening)
Fit the drain plugs / self drainers (1 evening)
Mount the Hardware for the forstay and Jib (1 evening)

+ Repaint the deck, it looks pretty grubby.

This weekend is looking touch & go, but it's getting close....

* It's amazing what you can do with a ground anchor* (think gigantic corkscrew), a whole lot of rope, an A-Frame, and a figure of 8 descender, and a few double blocks. Oh yes, and a few packs of rubber kids play tiles to keep from scratching the paint to bits.

** Trees make good anchors too. Anything 10" in diameter or so is not going to budge under any loading I'm likely to apply.

I can't believe how close you are! I have been following you for the past 3 years now. I think I may be almost as excited as you are!
