Willing Turtles and a Functional Mainsail

(Wilmington, NC)

Business as usual yesterday. Laundry, West Marine, Hardware Store, and turtles. Yup, we talked about turtles so much we actually willed them into our lives. We found these guys out for a walk, with their owner, on the way home from boat errands. I am now going to make a habit of talking about a briefcase full of a million dollars…

Today Tommy was back at the boat with the remaining parts for the mainsail. Greg and him installed the 5 new battens, along with three additional battcars for the reefing points. They also hooked up all the batten receivers to the existing battcars with the specialty i-bolts we were missing. And as luck would have it, they did this all in 50km gusting winds.
