CS34 Demasted

Beautiful sunny and warm day.

Rita convinced me to get the boat ready for haulout instead of scrambling during the week.

We started  by taking the sails off:

We got them folded and put in a dock cart.

Proceed in removing

  • stack pack
  • halyards
  • reefing lines
  • topping lifts
  • furling line
  • vang
  • boom

Took a couple of hours.

Went over to the mast crane, and got a pump out.
Took about an hour to get the mast down.

Stickless heading back to the dock

Spent some time cleaning up the mast; will move to the mast racks later in the week.

In the meantime, Rita was busy cleaning the exterior.  We cleaned up the dinghy; man it was filthly with green slime from being the water.  Got the outboard off.  We tied the still inflated dingy on the foredeck.

Sails were loaded in the car.  I am going to have sailmaker Durk replace the UV strip on the genoa, and fix the battens on the main.

All I really need to do before haulout is get the dodger/bimini canvas off.
