Launch Day!

Yesterday my Skerry got wet for thefirst time.

As I remember from a trial at the Wooden Boat show in Mystic she rows sweetly.  In fact she rows better than I row her.

Now to finish the rig so we can go sailing!

Close.  Using the link without the IMG tags, inserted using the "Image" tool button, and paring the width down to 575 will actually insert the photo like so:

I with you all joy of your very nice looking boat!

Bit of tide range wherever this is?

Thanks for sharing the photo!

RE: Launch Day!


it was launch day yesterday for my passage maker. Really enjoyed this winter project. 

After having the first sail I need some pointers on what you folks have done. 

First I need help with posting pics as my attempt came in too large for this post iPhone pick..

folding the main with the yard attached is bulky. Do I have to unlace it every time. I was hoping to drop the sail and fold boom , mast , sail and yard  all in one. Is this ever done? Is there a technique someone might suggest? 

Thee kids under 10 works good for movable ballast. But two adults are a bit awkward one in the bow, one on the stern seat. It looks like it would be better to sit in the bilge but it's a bit of a wet option when you have practiced man overboard drills with the kids.
