OK it looks like we are on our way.
Boat hauled out on Monday , blasted and in the shed.
Ain't sheds good, it has rained every day since haul out but we have not lost any time.
Old chain plates have been removed as they are to be repositioned.
A fair bit of grinding around the wheelhouse top to be carried out and all to be reglassed.
The old crane has been removed as the mizzen mast boom will be my new dinghy crane.

The rigger came down yesterday with the rig plans and we now have something to go ahead with.
Main mast will be 11.5 mts (38 ') may even be a bit taller depends on the section supplied, mizzen will be 1 mt shorter
I have added a few photos , a few of my mates rig, and mine should be very similar but probably not quite as heavy and a few of Tidahapah going in the shed.
