Summer (and Fall) of '98
Winter (and Spring) of '99 too...
After the dismasting (now refered to as: "THE UPGRADE") the boat spent the whole year at Svendsen's boat yard in Alameda. Following is a short list of modifications made to the newly named sailing vessel:
GenSet, Water Maker, new Radar, SSB, Dive Compressor, Nav Software, Dinghy, Outboard, Dinghy davits, mast, boom, sails, deck hardware, re-upholstered cushions, fuel system, AC/DC upgrade...and a new revolutionary, custom made ALARM system which could put any thief in jail quickly if it doesn't kill 'em first.
Have completed 22 sea trial sorties since I got the boat back, have hit the dock most of these times...have been more focused on sailing than docking I guess :-(
Am almost ready to go ....
