Fred & Jim Sailing
Jim Slosson came with us to try out the recut sails. It was a nice day.

The next job we had was fixing the winch. After several trips to the machine shop we had our new stainless steel gear ring, but not all the teeth were perfect. Fred finished them off with the dermal tool but the winch was still noisy.

Final touch up

Finished Winch

Another big job was replacing the balsa core in the cockpit sole. I tell you, it was too messy and I had epoxy all over my hands every day, too much so to pick up a camera. So no photos until this one.

We also visited Arroyos Verdes Resort and played in the pool. Nice place.
