Day’s Run – 5 February 2019

The day came in calm so we fired up the main engine. Early we had 3-knot fair current despite the calm. No seas to speak of. Sunny and clear. Tammy and John making sails on the hatch. A new spanker and a new t’gallant almost done. Getting our spare spar timber out of where it has been lashed in the scuppers since Lunenburg. Need to dry it out after many months of frequent saltwater baths. Olde time sailing ships always carried timbers for spare spars. A good idea too.
