This time, decided to rig up the two piece mast. There was absolutely no wind when I dropped the boat in but thought I'd go see if I could find some. Slight breeze started and thought I'd give the sail a try. Had to hook up the boom, sail and lines while floating around. But once all setup, I had enough wind to move the boat a little.
I asked a friend of he was coming out to his boat and he invited me to go along with him and his other friend on his Shannon 28. Been awhile since I sailed so I said sure. Rowed over to his slip at the nearby marina and off we went.
Really enjoyed the time sailing in his boat too. I feel like I needed that motivation to get my boat ready to go too.
After the sail, I rowed back to my marina, lifted the boat out of the water and into the dinghy storage. All the other stuff for the dinghy I stored back on my boat. I looked around at some of the work I need to do but it was about time I headed back to the house.
Great day and fun to get out on the water again. Ready for the next visit to get to work.
