A couple hours more work to rig the jib and install the mooring cleats and we'll be ready for a sea trial when Susie returns Wednesday with the car that has the trailer hitch. Hope for good weather.

Looks nice, Win did a good job on the sails.

I'd have put the sprits and booms on the port side for the mizzen, but could only justify the rational behind it over a beer.

We might still do that. The great thing about rigs like this is that you can change anything. However, it's big enough, that having your right hand forward helps with both sails. The sprits have to be inserted before the sails are fully hoisted and there is a lot going on. The snotter held up by a line to the throat instead of a thumbcleat is a great system in a rig this size.
