Repair Mainsail Cover - 15 Dec 2015

On Brent's recommendation I contacted John Rosemergy 021 571 281 to repair the mainsail cover (zip coming unstitched) and to make a bag for the dinghy.  Te get the sail cover off we had to remove the mainsail from the boom as well as the reefing lines, etc.

To reassemble the mainsail Grant came down to give me a very welcome hand. 

Eventually got the cover rigged with the 'lazy jacks' etc and then the first and second reefing lines, outhaul and cunningham.  We tested the reefing thoroughly while in the dock and tidied up the system.

 Was great for me to clarify in my mind how they worked. Many thanks Grant for your help.

Of course we then had to go for a quick sail for 'sea trials'.
