We met up with our friend, Collin, the same one who joined us on the commercial shoot, and had some fun in the vendor tent. I think this set up by Harken simulated a winch and timed how quickly you could raise a sail. Collin gave it a whirl and placed at #2 on the board. I think his final time was 7.40 or something crazy fast. I told you this guy was legit.
Although, apparently not as legit as Josh, who held on to the top spot, despite repeated attempts by our friend who tried to knock him down the board.
In other boat news, Matt is installing a 3 way valve to separate our main Heat/AC unit in the salon from the two in our hulls so he can remove the main unit while he works on repairing the fiberglass floor. We need to cut out the fiberglass and balsa core where screws were drilled to hold down the Heat/AC unit. Matt says then we need to pour a little acetone and let it sit for a while to let any residual moisture to dry out. I know I tend to poke fun at us and call us out for the amateurs we are, but I must admit, Matt has gotten good. It took us nearly a month to do our first oil change, and now he’s rerouting AC units like it’s no big deal. Wow, look how far we’ve come!
