New Sail

Picked up the new sail for FISH STIX today and started rigging her with Jake. He is a quick study and was very excited to be doing more marlinspike stuff. Great whipping. JSB is working hard on completing the comet and Doc on the oars. Pete, John and George worked on the garvey, new bottom paint. Jeff popped the ladybug into the river. Newt is Newt.
The last pick here is one of Jake putting epoxy on our experimental mast hoops. We were out of green oak for bending new ones and looking around the shop I found some cardboard tubes and some carbon fiber. I filament wound the tubes, Jake epoxied them, painted them, and voila we had some impromptu mast hoops. They seem to be holding up so far.
