    Default Surprise!

    Philpott made me do it! Actually, when I told her they'd arrived she sent me this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3-aAx4SOn0

    Instead of going to the pump-out (which was perhaps Philpott's only ride on Rags), we motored over to see Dazzler in Brickyard Cove. The goal was to turn the boat around and back it into the slip but we got distracted.

    Me and the yawl would accompany all y'all to HMB, except I have to go to a wedding tomorrow (somebody I don't even know), and the yawl has plastic-coated lifelines.

    I'll keep working on it.

    Looking forward to seeing you sail in reverse by alternately backing the mizzen like Donald Street on Iolaire.

    No sailing in reverse but I had my first solo sail on the new boat. Chris "Fugu" Case was returning from HMB and caught me on the way back to Richmond YC - thanks for the photos Chris!

    I'd wondered what the mizzen was for and got my answer: It's for fiddling with! These photos also confirmed I should have the boot stripe repainted white (among other things).

    Agree on the boot stripe....but that is one pretty boat.

    Sled, there are several things you and Dazzler may notice in this photo. Others are welcome to comment but you guys saw the "before."

    Bob, I enjoyed our coastal delivery of SURPRISE! That day reminded me over and over how often I look to the masthead, and I kept finding something missing. Good to see you’ve addressed that issue.

    Other changes: I see you’ve made a subtle change in homage to RAGTIME! And, it appears you’ve been fiddling with batten flex. That top batten looks much better.

    I'll bet the Number 18 wasn't up there yet when you sailed it from Santa Cruz.

    No change to reefs, windex added, sail numbers changed, box for second batten replaced (improving tension).

    There are a few other changes that Sled's sharp eyes will probably spot.
