I’ve never done this before.
Is kind of a strange sensation.
You are concerned about your body image and how you look
You are constantly wondering if people are looking at you and what they are thinking.
They all seem to look better than you
But in the end, you just have to go for it.
So, we left all the sails with the sailmaker and we are now cruising around without sails.
A naked sailboat. (what were you thinking?)
The saga continues. We met with the sailmaker and rigging company today and they shortened the forestay which brings the top of the mast forward which tilts the aft (back end) of the boom up and away from the hard top. Success on that part but we are still struggling to get the new mainsail to roll up (furl) on the boom correctly and easily. The sailmaker has a few last tricks up his sleeve and we are hopeful one of these will be the solution. The frustration level is mounting in all of us.
The new boom vang has been ordered but it will be 7 to 10 days before it is here, so I guess we are cruising on a naked sailboat. Which is a whole lot different than naked and cruising on a sailboat 😊
