Last Thursday we went to Medemblik to Varuna. We wanted to come there in the eveninng to test all the new mast LED lights after our mast had been refitted. All worked well.
We brought the cats with us, and they adjusted well. I am not sure they loved it, but I think, if we are happy and calm, they will be too. They stay down below, and are not interested in moving around in the cockpit or on deck. We let them take their time.
On Friday we went through everything the riggers had been working on.
We have new standing and running rigging. That feels very good, safe and secure. We have installed a removable inner forestay, jacklines, a radar reflector. A couple of mast steps at the top of the mast.
We have a whisker pole and a permanent preventer mounted on the boom. The gas spring in the rod kick has been replaced snd the electric furler for the main sail has been serviced. We are very happy with all of the wirk Rake Rigging have done.
