It was a beautiful day and I contemplated going sailing. I got the boat out of the carport and up on the trailer. Before going sailing I decided it was time to replace all the crappy zinc nuts and bolts I had used last year with some stainless steel. I also decided to replace the thole pins with regular oar sockets. All the zinc had already started to rust after only one season on the water. Good thing I replaced it all now or it would have been much harder down the road.
The brass oarlocks are much prettier
After that I could have gone sailing, but I decide to redo the rigging for the sail. I added some big zip tie mast hoops (temporary solution), fixed the halyard to the mast, and added some lazy jacks. Now I can drop the sail and the boom is held up by the lazy jacks and catches the sail nicely as well.
A little bit of touch up paint and the Terror of the Sea is ready to hit the water in fine style again.
