The boat is laid up in the “well” at Elite Marine at Salt Creek.  SSMR (http://ssmriggers.com) is doing a complete rigging remove and replace job for use. These folks really seem to know what their doing, so we’re leaving the hardware choices up to them and their experience. There were a few issues with the bad design of the stays that took more time than first thought.  Also we learned that our roller fuller genoa was installed improperly over a turnbuckle.  We have also commissioned a pair of custom half inch stainless plates to fabricated by the Embree Marine Welding shop for the genoa roller furler to replace the turnbuckle setup
