You did good Karl getting momma into the boat. Do that once it is in the water and you might not have much problem after that.

The smile says it all. I think you may have a crew member. :D

Hi,
I think the smile comes from being sligthly sozzled but I really hope for her to being my crew member mainly that the sail will not be a lonesome affair. The good thing on an Adelie is the deckhand can just enjoy the view because holding a sheet and tiller will be easy for me and I am convinced it is the ideal single handed sail boat, thanks to Jacques well thought out design to just being on the water at a leisurely speed.
Greetings from Karl

It must be starting to feel like summer Karl. And you must be getting close to being ready to splash? I'm really looking forward to that day. :D

Hi,
Today is a big day for me as the last 2 small jobs need to be done before I can say the sail boat is finished. I must sand with 180 grit the starboard side before I can give both sides the last coat of paint. Port side I sanded yesterday evening. Notice the bow cleat is mounted strong enough that I can lift the whole boat with a rope around it. The boat definitely looks as if it wants to come out of the shed which was its home for the last 5 years. In 2 or 3 days I will attach the name Wilde Qualle on both sides and then in goes the trailer for adaptation of the bunks and to balance it on the axle with the right tongue weight.
