Mainly rope work

I have been fiddling with ropes much of today. Fittings new lanyards to the shrouds. They will need a bit of stretching. New tie downs for the spray hood, to be the right length this year. New tackles for the centreboard up haul and down haul. New lazy jacks. Spent some time simply heat knifing the ends of overlong and fraying ropes, which have needed doing for over a year.

I have also fitted a steel eye plate to the underside of the gallows to hook the main sheet onto when I am towing, just so it has somewhere obvious to go. So no big jobs, just lots of tidying up loose ends, literally. Still to tackle the waterline...
