Sails Today Sailing Tomorrow

Sails arrived today. I recieved incredible service from Ullman Sails. 
The above photo shows the sails, boom, engine (2 paddles), and rudder. Thriller still has wet paint on it. I'm taking the family sailing tomorrow for the maiden voyage.

Much Progress Since December

The mast would not fit in the garage, so I cut a hole in the door and worked on half of the rig at a time.

Above is a view from the outside. I'm certain the neighbors enjoyed this sight.

Mast finally installed and measuring the sails.

Deck is painted.

Trial fit on trailer. The bunks aligned with minimal shimming required. The boat sits much higher of the ground than I expected. Maybe I've become accustom to looking down at the deck. On the trailer the deck is chin high!

Entire deck is painted with traveler installed.
