Yeah, I'm on a diet 'cause I dont have a spi for downwind!

Sugarloaf is at about 60% and still sailing - just gotta dodge the islands coming up out of the water!

I saw the pics of BeYC on the VYC site - there's not enough water to float a rubber duck...

Hooray!!!!

Its been in the water... and it didnt break, sink, or otherwise get damaged.

20 last minute checks before leaving home saw me only forget some mats to put on the ground (stones) and leaving late due to the crew's tennis, saw us late for the start and no lunch!

No wind saw us struggling to get over the start line and 3 hours of drifting saw us come last! But we were out there finally.

Late for the start - Thats us off to the right. everyone else has started. At the end we were only about 50 metres behind 'Lemon Peel' another sloop Mossie, and about an hour behind the Taipans and Mossie with Spi.

That looks REALLY GOOD!!! great job.
It sure is hard sailing with no wind but thats prob typical. Spend forever painting a boat first chance to sail no wind.

Yeh, Paint job looks fantastic. Looking on the bright side you didn't break anything on the maiden voyage and had plenty of time to survey the setup and deck layout. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

The paint looks good... at a distance ! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

In a hurry, I had already left the shore before I realised there was no mast rotation control <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />- had to make do with a shock cord, also a 2 to 1 downhaul isnt good enough. All things to fine tune in the next outing or 2.

It was a buzz out on the water all the same as I havent sailed in about 5 or 6 years. Cant wait for next weekend!

Hi There, IT's Ben in Sydney.
Just purchased a new mozzie, needs some TLC and Painting.
The boat is sail nbr 1547, thought I'd keep you in the loop with what I'm doing to it - photos attached... For those who live vicariously through this forum like I do.
By the way, people say fixing up a boat is a joy - I"M REALLY FEELING JOYFUL - NOT!
Regards, Ben.

I have a freind at dulux so I got some LUXATHANE 2pac for free just had to buy the hardner. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />
Problem is only had the choice of grey or BA blue <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />they had been mixed incorectly so he said I could have both so ive got 8ltrs of both.
I thaught I would put it out there BLUE..... OR GREY.....
Just think of it as Reality tv program of sorts. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />
CHEERS BEN

Ben

What shade of grey would you say, dark, light or somewhere in between?

The lighter the better, my personal view would be grey base with blue signage, but signage starting back at least at the main beam (no signage at bows, small pinstripe OK)

1cm checkers of blue and grey all over would be original and awsome !!
Just dont ask me to help mask it up. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Or how about a grey millitary look with 02 in big font on the bow. You could even wear the uniform with a white cap... <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Hi Ben

Looks good, you must going flat out, your making me look lazy <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />

How did it come up after the long board? Pretty good by the looks of it! How much time on the wet n dry did you spend do you think? Just preparing myself for the same.

The stands look good, very good idea, might be another job for tomorrow <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Anyway looks like your on target for the vic states, look forward to seeing the top coats on.

Regards
