Windy and sunny.

Falkor drew a few drops of blood four times from two people and claimed my new shoes. Probably her way of reminding me that this kind of refit is only necessary when she is stuck on land for seven and a half of the last eight years.

A Dutch sailor from a neighboring boat recognized Falkor as a Trintella IV, today. “She is a strong boat, built for circumnavigation by Anne Weaver and designed by E.G. Van de Stadt.” I know her pedigree, but it’s awesome when other sailors pick her out of the crowd. She really does deserve to get back in the water.

Masts are 99% prepped. Raising them first thing tomorrow.
