The thwart is in… and trust me, it nearly thwarted me! When cut to size, it wouldn’t fit into the cockpit deck opening, so I had to trim off 5/8 of an inch from the starboard side, and re-glue it after the thwart was on top of the daggerboard trunk. Not really an issue since I used 5 layers of fiberglass on each end as I tabbed it in, and there will also be support blocks underneath. I’ve also installed the new chainplates (5/16″ diameter u-bolts, intended to be bow eyes). Tonight I’m going to splice lines and get the running rigging as set as I can. I’ll post some pictures tomorrow.

- “There aren’t too many small boat voyagers left, and we are they. Those of us with experience sailing, paddling, and rowing light expeditionary craft on adventuresome treks have a bit of a duty to set good, seamanlike examples to those who are paying attention to what we do, both to further the passion, and ensure that those who follow our path do so in safety. For they, in turn, will be the ones to further the passion in years to come.”
