‘Pike’ is in the garden, and patio materials are in her boatshed! That’s the situation. The patio has priority because my wife has priority. My wife wants the patio by a certain date and I’m doing all I can to make her wishes come true. This is a challenge, and I’m wondering if weather and time will allow for a happy outcome.
Tomorrow, I shall be looking forward to a visit from Paul Mullings who has frequently contributed to the Comments section of the blog. He lives in New Zealand, but he’s on holiday in the UK. Maybe he will give me a helping hand to sort out ‘Pike’s’ rig. I’ve never had a boat with a spritsail; therefore I’m curious to find out how it works. Iain Oughtred’s sail plan drawings show her without a boom, but this ‘Pike’ comes with one.
