Gap between infill and keel
Gap filled with putty
This must be the last lap of the race to make ‘Talitha’ ready for sailing this season. I think the boat is finished, but there may be a few minor adjustments - in light of experience gained from sailing her.
The last two days I’ve been working on her trailer to make it roadworthy. I’ve probably achieved this, now that it has been fitted with a security chain. The lighting board, with its extension cable, clips onto the rudder fittings, and it is kept in place by ropes tied to the trailer frame.
Theoretically, all systems are ‘go’ for being on the road, except for checking that my car insurance covers me for towing a trailer.
Because I have a busy week, I can’t see myself getting away for the first sail until this coming Saturday, but if I can find an opportunity before then, I’ll take it.
