Maura has been good on the boat for a while now but Kitty is just starting to come into her own. She's happy as can be just watching the other boats, the birds and playing with her toys. There were a couple of instances where I thought we were going to get to do a dolly over board drill but she managed to keep all of her little friends in the cockpit.
In answer to the question 'did the new blocks help?', I can say unequivocally 'not a damn bit'. Back to the proverbial drawing board. C'est la vie. That is the goal of these little short sails, to figure out what works and what doesn't so a failure is just as useful as a success. Somehow I think we are going to have a lot more useful failures in our future.
Our new lights arrived. Well, some of them at least. The majority of them are on back order but we hope to start getting them installed this week. That will be my next refit related post- the huge ordeal that was deciding on lights. Yes, something so small and insignificant was something we agonized over for 2 weeks. Sometimes we like to run in circles for no apparent reason, just because we can.
