Got to the club around 10am, and started getting the frame pieces together.
Took a while because a couple of the connector pieces were broken, and I had to replace them. The ends of the ribs needed their rubbers replaced so that would not dig into the gelcoat.
Took several hours to get it together. My neighbour Dave helped me put the back part of the frame up (took about 10 minutes), then I spent another hour getting the rest up.
The canvas cover comes in three sections, so I was able to single handedly put it on.
Looks pretty good:
Note how the boom and whisker pole are stored on the crale
|Mental note: ridge pole too far forward.|
|Dropped the anchor to the ground because the cover doesn't fit with it|
|Note the repairs|
|The cover is GREAT|
Drained the hot water heater, installed the winterizing bypass. Empied the water tanks, and winterized the water system.
Still need to winterize the head and bow deck wash pump.
