Not looking good... post script....

So on Sunday I decided with nothing better to do I'd pop down to the boat and see if it was where I'd left it...

Suffice to say the forecast had been proven correct...  for the time I was on the boat it blew force 6 (WSPD) gusting 7 (GST) all the time, and continued to do so for most of the day - wind direction (WD funnily enough) was north of west (most unusual) and once I was out of the shelter provided by the bund the road is built on, the water was damned choppy...

Still..  the boat was where I'd left it - along with all the others - no damage, nothing breaking lose - bit of rain water in the bilges (half an inch and fresh), but other than that she was fine....

Dropped off the now completed cockpit step cum table (with one final modification which was to sprinkle the penultimate coat of wet paint with fine sand for some grip - the last coat of paint on top of that stops you thinking you've got sand on the table! )

Need to go sailing - but work this week is not going to allow that, then I need to get her in for standing rigging (hopefully next week 4th and or 5th) - this weekend is looking good though, fingers crossed....
