Above is a photo of the boat as it set yesterday.  Easy to see where the new hatch covers are.  Note the huge blue power boat directly behind us.  As of late Seabrook Shipyard as all but tied us to the dock by parking these large boats directly behind us on their work pier.  The solution is that we procured another slip in the marina away from the shipyard.  Our boat goes in the yard next Monday…when it comes out we will move the boat to the new berth.

Those who sail might wonder if we have sail covers for the genoa and staysail shown in the above photo…for customarily, the UV protection strips that are sewn to the outside edge of the sail as it rolls onto the autofurler is the same color as the rest of the boat’s canvas.  Well, the answer is that the previous owners indeed had a UV protection strip sewn to the sails but chose to make the color of it white.  So, though you can’t see the UV protection, our sails are indeed protected.  Though we didn’t get to it this weekend, we planned to take the staysail down and to a sail loft where they will replace the UV strip protection with black instead of white…we’ll also replace the sheets and the halyard at that time.  The same will happen to both our genoa and main.
