Drift is out of the shed, ready to be moved to for rigging and launch later in the week. Hull has had a polish with UV resistant polish. Sprayhood, cockpit tent all fitted. I have been through the lines, checked the blocks, furlers and laid out the sails.
I have made the instrument board and bought the Garmin EchoMap50 which gives GPS speed and depth in one box and you get a good chart plotter to boot. Transducer will be in hull, so to be fitted on the water.
I have had to take off the rear locker and cut a slot underneath so the fuel line can pass through without being squeezed too much. Anchor line and chain, fenders, VHF and a couple of blocks are last on the purchase list.
Attempts to find a good sign writer have not been successful, so name stickers need ordering.
Countdown to launch has begun……..
