Show Time!

Kevin McDaniel (builder of Pipedream) and I were asked to display our boats at an event at Crowley's Yachtyard in Chicago in conjuction with epoxy manufacturer West System, who is also building an i550.  We had lots of folks show interest in the boat, and several were already familiar with the boat an came to the show to see them.  Pertty cool!

All in all, it was a really great day for the i550!  Hopefully we will get a few more builders in the Midwest.

Long Winter's Nap

At long last, I pulled the boat out of the storage unit today. Temps were in the high 40s here in Madison, so (with Traci's help) I stepped the mast and hoisted the jib to nark for the jib tracks.

On to drill and fill and redrilled for the jib tracks and finish up a few other miscellaneous items so I can be ready as soon as the lakes thaw!
