I know its just a Shellback, but its our first sailboat so I gotta do this.
Not much wind the first day but we did get much better wind the past couple of days. The launching was at Lake Winnipesaki (sp) for a week long 50th anniversary celebration/reunion for my wifes parents.
It was cool to see Gail and her Dad go out sailing togeather. Anyway thanks to those of you that have provided answers to my stupid questions and to Clinton Chase for much advice on this style of construction !
edited to add: Shamefully I forgot to mention. Gail, my wife, sewed the sail and when hit with a fresh breeze is as smooth as can be. In these pics the air is pretty light. And as you can see I didn't haul the yard on the same side as the boom !!
