Offshore Installations

Getting ready to tackle Category 3 Monohull Offshore races like the Susan Hood and LO300 involves quite a bit of gear, but the biggest projects were to install a fixed compass and radio (with masthead antenna).  Yesterday David led team RADIO (with Lazy Sheet as trusty assistant) and Gil lead team COMPASS (while I handed him tools and ran the vacuum cleaner).  Before drilling a 4.5″ hole in the boat, Gil and I spent over an hour measuring, thinking, planning.  Then in 90 seconds….presto!  Here are some snaps of a chilly day in the boat yard.

(Have I mentioned that PERSPECTIVE has the best crew on the bay?)
