New Crew!

Bonita was in Dartmouth all day today drying out a bit from yesterday. Sadly Justin has now run out of time having helped us all the way from the Swale, and has had to return to the real world. My new crew is Geoff who arrived this afternoon after a rather tortuous journey from Canterbury.
The most pressing job that needed doing was making a new boom crutch to replace the one that got washed over yesterday. The picture shows the final product. The previous one was in oak with a patina accumulated over many years of varnishing. The new one is in knotty pine as that's all they had in the shop. However it should do OK until I can either make a more sophisticated one or maybe just get used to it.
We had a jolly supper in the yacht club with Martin Pound, sailing a shrimper, Charlotte Elizabeth singlehanded.
