Now that we have a baby, a bigger boat is in order. The Redwing is for sale! We have our eye on a new good, old boat, but we can't have two sailboats at the same time and so we're looking to make a move quickly!
This is sort of a sneak peek - once the boat is launched the ads will go out far and wide!
Spread the word!

While it was in the boatyard, I had a local fiberglass guy come and take a look. His plan was to take off the metal mast-step, core out the fiberglass, reinforce it with wood or marine plywood, glass that all in, and put the shoe back on. It turned out that the metal had become too curved to be reused, so we had to manufacture a new one. The new one is what you see here in this picture. It looks great. All the holes are for the lines that are led aft to the cockpit. Almost every control line leads back to rope clutches, making single-handing easier.
