We went aloft for a safety inspection after this beautiful Cabo Rico experienced a lightening strike.

You can see below that the brunt of the lightening strike was taken by the VHF antenna.

Pictured below you will see two head-swivels on a set of Profurl headsail furlers. One with correct hoist and one that is just shy of correct. As you can see the link bar should be hoisted high enough to engage the trademark Profurl ‘puck’.

Lastly…… you can tell when your mast needs a fresh coat of paint.
