Not wet yet :( . As you can see by the other boats it is close to the water.

Here are a few pictures of the main and jib during the dry run.


I have also order a couple of outside mounted bailers to make it easier to drain the cockpit. I plain on mounting them on each side of the CB.

Hopefully the weather will cooperate this weekend :D

I can sense the excitement building! She is looking great and I'm sure the sailing will just as good.

Do you believe this weather :mad:
Here is the weekend outlook fo Indiana:

Tomorrow:*Becoming windy with scattered thunderstorms, possibly severe. High 83F. Winds SSW at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of rain 40%. Rainfall near a half an inch.
Tomorrow night:*Becoming windy with thunderstorms likely. A few may be severe, especially in the evening. Low around 60F. Winds SSW at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of rain 70%. Rainfall around a half an inch.
Sunday:*Partly cloudy and windy. Highs in the upper 60s and lows in the low 40s.

Not exactly best conditions to launch a boat the first time :(

Oh well, it gave me time to install the bailers and pickup some hiking straps. It was very nerve racking to be cutting square holes in the bottom :eek: :eek:
Needless to say it was measure three times and cut once smile.gif
