Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

At the lake again

Boat work never ends ...

We got to the Butte with maybe a half hour of daylight left, but we still got some stuff done on the boat, such as re-running the boom vang control line, putting new line on the backstay control, putting in some planks as temporary floor supports until we have time and money to build a permanent frame, replacing the tiller-extension clip on the tiller, installing the compass, and a couple of other little things. We still have a few more things to deal with in the morning, such as installing new line for the mainsheet. Between racing this weekend, building up my word count, and not being near Web access for most of the time, this blog will be pretty quiet over the weekend, but I'll try to get a report up Monday.

Batwoman and Tadpole were at for about an hour after dark... and there's more to be done tomorrow. Wonder whether somewhere there's a competitive event of fixing a boat while racing?

You could always make that an event for the Etchells fleet you're starting. ;)
