    Please do. I'm flying back to Maine tomorrow however feel free to check out the progress. I'll be back in Dec to keep the momentum going.

    The bow dorade vent setup is/was very cool, however I'm opening it up on the inside and going to seal up the bow holes. Besides, the birds that lived there (while in Birch Bay?) will probably never find the boat again...

    Wow, cool. Please tell Ron hi, and that when we get sailing again would love to get him out for a ride on his old steed.

    Good thing the mast is out... Hard to stop every leak, some were already there... however overall she's pretty secure. Anyone need a Lewmar anchor windlass? It's a 12V H2 or H3, not sure of the difference...

    A few of you might remember...about 12 years ago I got locked in an internet cafe in La Rochelle, France. I was working late, went to the bathroom... The young cafe attendant forgot I was still there, locked up, and left. I was there all night, but at least I had free internet so most everyone knew I was in there. Except the next cafe attendant who got a bit of a shock to find me at work inside in the morning... Well, this Saturday afternoon working on Improbable at Betts' Enterprises, the last employee to leave didn't notice Star (the official Improbable support car) parked under the boat. Thinking everyone was gone, he chained the gate, and left... Being Saturday night by the time I noticed that I was locked in, everyone was out of town. On the plus side I could slide myself out under the fence/gate, however Star was trapped inside. So I walked over to downtown Anacortes, where I had dinner at the Agave Taqueria. I was going to get a cab to where I'm staying, however I posted a report to Facebook and a sailor I know from Maine who now lives in Anacortes saw the update and came to pick me up. Small world this is... Will bike to the boat tomorrow. Hopefully Star won't be trapped inside till Monday...

    I'm following your dad's advice pretty closely...;-) Seriously though, almost everything I'm doing on Improbable is stuff I've thought about for 30+ years...

    Those in that particular pile were for the massive autopilot system my dad had put in. There were also (not pictured) two hydraulic backstay rams and a clunky pump/reservoir that was built into the front of the cockpit. I donated those to NW Rigging.

    It was splashing out interesting water while I was carrying it down the ladder...
