Well, the new owner took her out for a sail with his son last Saturday.  They had a delightful time.  IMG_4019.thumb.jpeg.0b77c3944de2ff3ce38ddb7a74e1de0e.jpeg


When pulling her out and up to the parking lot to derig, the main mast struck a limb, and snapped off at the deck!  IMG_2128.thumb.jpeg.18fe9936e5329cf3fe76b6bfb01ddf04.jpeg

He is determined to do a temporary repair, to get him through this season.  He plans to make a new one this fall/winter.  I think he’s crazy, but he is confident it will work.  Oh boy!

So, here’s the rest of the story.  He had a local man who works with aluminum make the repair.  They slid in a solid aluminum insert.  He sailed her once or twice here in NC, and took her to Maine on vacation.  These are photos of him sailing on Eggamoggin Reach. Off the water! Was a stiff breeze, and everything performed well.  Whew!
