    33 pound Rocna for summer mooring. We are allowed 75 days a year to anchor out, I can live with that.

    The wishbone is on the stay'sl.
    The mizzen has no boom , just a curved bumpkin.
    Both are evolving.

    Whats with the 75 day thing? Is that to stop people dropping the hook for longer periods in any one spot? Looking like a lot of fun, keep us updated with the jib sprit developments.

    Yes, There are very few natural harbors here. Big brother cleared them out over the past decade. Rich folk living on the water do not want to see boats anchored . Environmental lip service.same old story.

    mini cat for the Bruce,


    ...no more milk crate,
    .

    I hope this helps my fuel leak. I will take the mill back out in the off season and have it properly serviced eventually.
    Two of the three weep fuel,

    Hah! Yup , epoxy and 403.
    I sprayed them with carb cleaner and blew them off.
    I am afraid to start and run it frankly.Now that it is temporarily clean.
    I do not think the high pressure is blowing by, just the return fuel line that I buggered up previously.
    I am more concerned that the epoxy will not tolerate the 180 degree engine heat.
    Time comes to remove it , it will be with a torch.

    Can't say I would have thought of that, I've used stick epoxy for mechanical repairs before but not like that.
    Love the 'cat' spare man, that's how you do it.

    Bruce, you have a hell of an eye for wooden boats. Super. Really great.

    Two of the three weep fuel,
    Those crush washers will likely work if annealed. Heat them up and flick them in a can of water, use when cool, they should be soft enough to deform and seal.

    End of season, she is home after about 110 days in the water. I spent about 30 nights aboard.Trailer has been tricked out a bit. Mast is back up , I will use it to take the engine out tomorrow. It still leaks fuel , so that will be fixed. ....and a hundred other things to bring her into better shape.

    I would have been amazed if all that "mash" around the injectors had worked, but guess it got you through the season. Should have pulled mine out yesterday....been waiting for a break in the weather that has not come....wet and windy.
    How was the new jib? Did you try that Jib boom set up?

    I appreciated your hospitality aboard Wonderland at the PTWBF. She's a fine little ship for the PNW, ugly windows and all.
    There's the plan, then there's what actually happens.

    Hey I learned who built the boat while in Antigua last winter! She was actually built right in Pt Hudson /Pt Townsend by Sam Connor,the fellow who STARTED Pt Townsend Wood Boat festival. He was in Antigua on his own boat and his wife came over to say hi cuz of our Seattle homeport, one thing led to another.
    She was not launched last summer, but I did another hundred little things .
    Got the engine tweaked, added a third set of shrouds(forward lowers), heavier and longer bowsprit, bigger pilot "box", pulled that ridiculous teak off the cabin top...stuff like that .
    She may go in next month. Ive been a year and a half applying for a mooring permit...still waiting.

    Pretty little boat Bruce, I'm not sure about the looks of the compainway hatch, but I'm sure it is purposeful.
