So near, yet so far…

Hurley 22 Stepping Mast

Mammoth day yesterday, got the mast aboard and dressed, connected the VHF and successfully radio checked with Portland Coastguard, got the light working and then ran out of steam about 7pm after a 12 hour day…

This morning I got the new spreaders on after a bit of re-engineering and attached the back stay. Went to attach the new cap shrouds and realised the new clevis pins are too big for the existing chain plates. The chandlers is shut now til tomorrow.

Bugger.

As soon as I get this sorted though, I can launch!
