to turn into this:
But in the meantime, we have something approaching Spring, albeit with a stray gale and another snowstorm thrown in for good measure. Plans for Slappey’s rigging upgrade continue, and our new sails seem to be coming along…
If we have even a bit of cooperation with the weather, Slappey will be near good as new by Summer, and we can spend more time actually getting to sail the boat. Included in the makeover will be exterior canvas of more than one color. I have long tired of uniform green; a boat named Slappey will not be dull!
