Views from Aloft

I see you!

JIMMIE COCKERILL PEERING THOUGH THE ROPES FROM ALOFT

Here we are aloft again. This time to try and (unsuccessfully) drop-in a new spare Main Halyard.

STEVENS 50 LEISURE FURL BOOM FURLER FROM ALOFT

There was foam inside the mast for noise dampening. This foam caused our plumbers chain to get snagged on the way down….no matter how hard we tried.

STEVENS 50 FROM ALOFT

Stevens 50 is a pretty slick little old schooler. Old being the operative word. The boat’s rigging showed more than its fair share of problems; spreader boots and halyard restrainers needed…

Bert Jabin’s is looking good as usual. It really is the best place for all of your full service needs in the Mid-Atlantic, without question.

BERT JABIN'S YACHT YARD FROM ALOFT. THE BEST AMRINA ON THE EAST COAST!

While looking around I noticed the Dufour (560 ?) next to us has hoisted the furler swivel up over the top of the extrusion and has dislodged Facnor‘s wrap stop puck. YIKES! This could make the sail very hard to douse just FYI. Time to shorten the luff.

Mother Nature has blessed us once again with one of her beautiful HD quality days.
