Most winter jobs just about complete
I have rigged up the top section of a fishing rod as a flag staff to raise up on the mizzen mast. It should get my ensign above the sail and by running the halyards down through the rod's rings, I should be able to keep it vertical. I need a new ensign to test it. My old one blew away when the sail undid itself on the mooring.
I have poured some water system cleaning agent into the fresh water tank, which I should pump out tomorrow. I'll refill it at the marina. No point in towing 50kg of water down the motorway.
I need to get all jobs finished because there are only two weekends left before we go to India, and I want to be able to launch as soon as we get home.
