I’ve had two big triangular cloth thingies that came with the boat and ever since I’ve been trying to figger out what they are for.
Someone said to tie them to the big stick in the middle of the boat and you can move when the wind blows on them. Still not convinced.

These appear to be the original sails that came with the boat making them 35 years old. They look in pretty good shape. How well they will hold up in the wind is another matter but for all the sailing I’ll be doing they should be fine.

I do need to replace the slugs and pins that hold the mainsail but other than that, everything looks to be in working order.

  1. Glad to hear it! One step closer to escaping the latrine master.

  2. I’m relieved. As I’m sure you are.
