Drove pretty slowly and the snow had mostly melted-we made it!!!

Looks like hull #570, haven't had main out to check sail number yet.

I sure have some work to do.
Boat is overall in very good condition.

Only major flaw noted is some delamination on the rudder- toward the
top, but significant.

I'll be disassembling for possible repair-do you have any experience
with this problem or with finding replacement rudder?

Tomorrow (Sunday) I plan on going through the boat-from stem to stern as
it were.

You can't imagine my excitement!



Congratulations. I don't remember if you subscribed to the 
majordomo mail list but I am sending this message to the 
list to see if you get some idea on how to handle the 
delamination problem. Therer is a link to dealers who still 
have parts available. One in Mt. Vernon, Washington, on the 
mainland east of the San Juan Islands (almost where I get 
off the ferry when going to the mainland, and another in 
North Carolina, which would be closer to you. I have never 
tried to get a part from them but maybe someone else has 
some experience to share with us on that.

"I must go down to the seas again, for the call
   of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be
And all I ask is a windy day with the white
   clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and
   the sea-gulls crying.
