I bought some of that mesh shade material with some grommets sewn in. Definitely need to make some shade out there.

The rig seems fairly easy, I just need some practice so I can identify all the lines quicker.

Heading to Lake Worth today then West End tomorrow or Wednesday.

Waiting on a diver to clean the bottom. I didn't think of having that done but should have-- the boat has been sitting for a couple of months and it has barnacles on the bottom I realized after I cleaned out the AC sea strainer, which also was filled with barnacles. They must really like the water on the St Lucie river. I've never had barnacles on the inside of the strainer.
