Ready to sail at Cedar Key

Just finished the tonneau cover with snaps.  Not an easy layout.  The batten had to be shorten making the port side sag ever so little.  Not perfect but respectable. 

Motor mount was cut from an old SeaPearl rudder on my bandsaw.  After soda blasting and wire brushing, I applied Matrix System MX-550 etching solution with the gun.  After two coats had dried, I primed it with Awlgrip 545 primer and then finished it with a so called appliance epoxy spray can finish.  Looks pretty good to me.
The new long shaft Honda BF 2.3 came from Cumberland Water Sports at a very attractive price including free shipping overnight. 

Mounting the freshly cleaned and stitched full battened sails from Sailcare.  These sails are absolutely beautiful.  Makes the boat all the better buy!

We have our reservation at Cedar Key Sunset RV campground space 41 for April 27-May 4.  Looking forward to sailing
