I’ve finally renewed with my long forgotten friend Westsail last weekend. The boat looked sad under the tarp and over 6 months of harsh weather!
Meanless to say I was happy, it’s home. Even if I live in a house for work for the past 2 years when I arrive to the boat I can breathe, my rhythm change
and I feel myself.
After some cleaning the boat look a lot better, and I have to say I was really happy to try the heater at night. Toasty to sleep, but always hard to get out of the blanket in the morning when it’s out. I’ve finished installing the pulpit on the bowsprit and started to install the hatches .
The cockpit locker was crying for help (rot starting), so I’ve removed them and started new one at the house… Should be installed soon… So much more to do for the departure this year: Windvane, solar system, lifeline, check the engine etc… But hey… I won’t complain I am finally leaving after some 7 years on land, do I will remember how to sail?!
