Almost there!

To that statement, one might ask "almost where?".

Well, I haven't restored the boat to perfection, I must admit. But I've been spending a lot of time on it, getting dirty and tackling any job that comes up. I've made new holes in the deck and took a lot of rot out and then patched it, installed new thru-hulls, made a hull repair, spliced ropes, installed a water tap and connected the water tank to it through a foot pump, bla bla bla. The major work that's left is varnishing/painting and reinforcing some weak spots where I've made repairs. I'm having my genoa serviced but still need to get a new main as the old one is not that great. Will also need to implement some reefing system as there is no reefing at the moment. I'm hoping to have it back in the water in a couple of weeks but will see how it goes.
