Vital fuels loaded

I have loaded the beer, coffee and tea. Only fuel still needed is petrol for the engine. Hope to get her down to Poole on April 1 if the weather is any good, but it may not be until later in the week. The sailing in April is nearly always good, but cold at night as the water is still frigid. I also want to do a little work on the wooden strips which align the mast sections. The sail sliders for the full length batten can get caught on them when they come down. A bit of chamfering should ease it. I wanted to glue the mast solid, but didn't have the nerve to do it on my own. Not a job you want to get wrong...
