Sunny and windy.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands
The mizzenmast is almost ready. Remounting the generator and new radar were both experiences. The rigger said “Everything is complicated.” Sometimes, I feel that way about every task I try to complete on Falkor, but the work being done should make the upkeep much easier. Doing it right to erase the 5 years of sitting in Portugal, before the 2.5 years in the Canaries. Paso a paso. Little by little, she is coming back to form.
This week the yard also did a bit of epoxy on the skeg and took on the dirtiest job; sanding the copper coat. Looks like Falkor got a new skirt.
