The mast is finally up! WooHoo!! We bought the boat in mid March, she was delivered to Portland in early April, went back into the water in early May (it took a month to get the bottom paint done), and now in mid June we finally have the mast up. We’re not quite ready to go sailing yet but at least she looks like a sailboat, not an odd (underpowered) powerboat.
We are also pretty much done with the head refit and we are pretty happy with the results. Here are a few photos:
We also installed a foot pump (the sink water was supplied by an electric pump under the galley sink) and put in white Formica on the counter, it looks much nicer than the 70s style fake wood pattern.
The veneer near on the cabin trunk (near the portlight) was damaged and the headliner was starting to fail so we used the white Formica in these areas too.
The head is now a much brighter and more inviting space 🙂
And in case you are wondering, this is going to be our shower:
