Here's Shawn again. What do you suppose he's rigging to the main boom while underway? (Hint: mainsl blew, and we have extra headsls! Oh Jeez!)

The work on the bill is going well, we havn't run into any major road blocks yet, and are hoping to put the sticks back in her early.
Scotty Kimmet is arriving tomorrow and will be out shipwright on the project for the next week or two. He'll be chasing rot, rebuilding our skylights on the cabin top, and faciting out new foremast. He will aslo lead the shop crew in building the new tressel trees, hounds, and the like.
We're into the big push for the next week preping for the sticks to go back in, so if any one has some extra time and would like to come down and help call me at (360) 589-2299 on the ships cell phone.
