Portlights and Rigging

Posted on Fri 19 March 2010 in Projects

Since our wedding we’ve not slowed down a bit on our refit. Today the yard completed installing the wiring conduit in both masts, re-attaching the mail sail track and the new solent tang. Next steps are all on us to pull wire through the conduits, install all the new masthead electronics, spreader lights, and re-attach all of the standing rigging, including pulling a new forestay through the furler.

I’m sure this is going to take longer than the the two weeks in my head right now, but the best part is I feel all the work is in our hands and I can see the daylight at the end of the tunnel!!

Along the way Dawn and I have also replaced 7 of the 10 portlights, amongst other things, and we’re in the middle of re-doing number 8 and should finish this weekend (maybe # 9 too). We’ll have a detailed post on the portlights in the future, but let me just repeat myself; New Found Metals… GORGEOUS and drip free!!!
