“There’s good news and bad news.” When someone says that, is it ever really good? 😂

On our way south down the east coast of Florida, we stop in Stuart to have a professional rigger from Mack Sails take a look over our standing rigging. We had a bunch of questions:

1) After being hit by lightning the previous season, we wanted to know, is everything in satisfactory condition?

2) Our mast has been pumping ever since we bought the boat — is there something we can do to fix it?

3) The rig (as far as we know) is original to the boat. Yet it’s been stored indoors and sailed most of its life in fresh water. Do we need to worry about its age?

4) Kirk’s been tuning it himself. Is he on the right track, or way off?

Turns out we have some work to do on the boat. Join us for a huge project, go behind the scenes at the Mack Sails rigging shop, and find out what is the most expensive inch we’ve ever moved. 

Hope you enjoy!
