Rig Conversion Update

The new mast is scheduled to be delivered in early July. US Spars says the standing rigging from the original mast will fit so we won't have to buy new rigging. When the mast arrives we'll unship the old one and transfer the instruments and antennas, including radar and TV. We will also install a Tides Marine sail track and lazy jacks. There won't be much to do on the boom except add some sheaves and reefing lines. On deck we'll add a set of rope clutches for the reefing lines.  The new mainsail is also on order and we expect to have it in mid-July.
