Sea trials begin!

The mainsail flies quite well! After some tuning along the perils, those winkle went away.  Making your own sails is hard work.  But also rewarding and fun!

Making near hull speed in 15 knots with everything up!

Capt. Dale Plate at the helm for the first shakedown cruise.  It was nice to sail with a fellow gaff rigger.

Capt. Nick Massey came down the following day to help out and visit.

The new used Whale 25.  Installed and functioning.  Because batteries die.

The stern tread looks great!
