|Our comfortable spot in Vero Beach to get a few jobs done.|
The latest project is the ongoing rigging saga. A ‘bad’ clevis pin got changed, but that gave cause for concern over the rest of the rigging. Since then I have lifted Sim up the mast 7 times!
|The dye test shows that this clevis pin definitely needed changing - see the purple stress line near the top of the pin.|
|Our wheels for a couple of days....there was no losing this car in the parking lot!|
But it’s not all work. We hired a car for a couple of days while it was still cheap and convenient and got a surprise message from Jennifer who was here in Florida on vacation with mum and dad, Jim and Linda – our old cruising buddies from Opus. They were 150 miles away somewhere near St Augustine so we agreed to meet halfway in Titusville – a spot we are both familiar with. We had a delicious lunch and catch up at the Dixie Crossroads, renowned for their various seafood selection and Rock Shrimp.
