    Default Mr Ants decides Not go to Washington, but rather enjoy local SACTSCA events instead

    The thrill of getting an entry submitted quickly and accepted has expired.

    The logistics require a shuttle since the event starts in Tacoma and ends in Pt Townsend. There is a once a day bus run, but make sure you tell the driver since there are two connections that you donít want to miss. Being cheap and retired, the complications of lack of modestly priced places to stay in Pt Townsend make me less inclined to participate. Too much time and effort for too little return on the fun. Each entry decides whether to anchor out or dock at the overnight stops, so a fair bit of coordination to complete the course.

    The locals have an advantage when it comes to participating.

    There are easier ways to have fun on the water.

    The preparations on the boat continue.

    Local TSCA and spontaneous events will be enjoyed.

    The TSCA calendar describes the options nicely.

    I plan on participating in the delta gunkholing in early June on an Islander 36 with a small wooden craft or two behind.

    There is a Big Lagoon event in May that does not fit my calendar, but the TSCA calendar is void of events in July and I have reservations to head up to the Humboldt lagoons (Orick) in late July with the little double ender.

    Weekends book up quickly, so I am planning on weekdays.

    Order early and be patient.

    These 7 by 14 hatches (nominal size) were a special order item from Fisheries Supply. The order was placed in January and delivery was this week. Two open up the possible storage places in the aft end and the other two open up the storage under the seats.

    Progress on the effort to have rudder pintles in the same alignment.
    Stern mounts involved removing material at upper mounting and adding material at lower mounting.
    All thread rods still holds alignment and spacing.
    Rudder needs cuts since rudder width is thicker than pintle opening. So, temporary offset mounting.
    Kick-up rudder portion is sloppy since 5/16 bolt has 1/2 hole (simple fix with lathe turned plug).
    Finally, control lines to raise and lower lower portion are needed.

    Pelagic autopilot is coming.
