Cape Horn

Just heard back from the folks at Cape Horn and they're telling me I
installed the windvane incorrectly. The instructions they provide are
very incomplete and hard to follow. I've asked them to send me a
drawing or photo of what the heck they're talking about. But, the
upshot is that I can probably fix the vane just by reinstalling a
couple of support brackets. If so, might not have to wait around to
get jacked up by the insurance guys. We'll see. It would have been
much easier to do the vane installation when we were still hauled
out. Now I'll probably have to work from the dinghy. But as I said,
"If it were easy…"

About sryoder

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.

    SteveHelped a friend put his Cape Horn on a Hans 33 last year just before the HaHa. Very poor instructions and cutting the hole through the tramsom was scary to watch. Your boat really looks good and I look forward to seeing you in San Diego or down the coast on the way,Ken (working for Cody this week)
