Up the Crow’s Nest

Before leaving for home we had a little time set aside time to take out the sailboat; unfortunately we also had to make a little time to fix a snag in one of the lines. A few weeks back the line for the main sail got away from our partner Nathan and went straight to the top. There is only one way to get it down and I was not volunteering. It’s a good thing I’m married to such a brave man. He was willing to strap into a little harness and get hoisted by a crane to the top of the mast! I took these shots while safely seated on the deck.

Ready to go up

Steady as she goes

After wrapping up that little errand we took old Rocky out for a lovely little sail and made it back just before the rain came. Hopefully we will have a chance to go out a few more times before it is time to but her to bed for winter.

Doesn't he look happy

    Glad to see you having some down time (even if you did go up lol).
